Future of Cyber Criminals and Measuring Their Activity

Claire Hargreaves, Security Lancaster

Thursday 18 April 2013, 1000-1600
Lancaster University

Cyber crime is one of the largest growing crimes in modern society and is increasing at an alarming rate with few barriers in its path. A key challenge in preventing criminals is understanding who these individuals are not just in terms of their offending patterns but also their characteristics. Information on traditional criminals is comparatively rich with many information sources existing, containing billions of records on offending patterns, socio-demographics and characteristics, whilst data on cyber criminals is near non-existent.

This workshop seeks to bring together experts in the field to explore the current situation and to widen the knowledge of cyber criminals and develop innovative approaches to obtain information on cyber criminals.
