The evolution of cybercrime: the monitoring of serious crime in cyberspace

    Project Details

    Description

    The research identifies change in cybercrime and assesses the scale and scope of criminal networks in cyberspace. Australian and regional regulatory and enforcement responses are assessed in the context of developments in the on-line business environment. The prevalence of jurisdiction shopping and safe havens is explored. The effectiveness of deterrence-based sanctions, law harmonization and mutual legal assistance is evaluated. A multi-method approach yields data designed to measure changes in offender behaviour and organization in cyberspace. Analysis will assist in informing strategic planning and operational practice as well as evaluating measures dealing with the emergence of serious criminal threats in cyberspace.
