Digest of Cyber Organized Crime
How is cyber #OrganizedCrime identified in case law & investigated around the world? @UNODC Digest of Cyber Organized Crime (2nd ed.) provides insights into the challenges & lessons learned from investigating, prosecuting & adjudicating such cases.
ABOUT THE CASE DIGEST
Information and communications technology (ICT) has transformed conceptions of organized crime. Specifically, ICT has had an impact on the nature of organized crime activities and the types of individuals who can participate in organized crime. While there is a growing body of research into various forms of cybercrime, there is comparatively less research on cyber organized crime. Without understanding the exact nature and extent of the threat, States continue to struggle in containing the security threat emanating from cyber organized crime. Moreover, without this information, policymakers and other stakeholders cannot make informed decisions in response to cyber organized crime and identify proper courses of action to respond to or otherwise address cyber organized crime.
To remedy this, the present case digest seeks to shed light on cyber organized crime and identify cyber organized crime cases from different regions. It identifies and analyses cyber organized crime cases in an attempt to determine not only key characteristics of this form of crime and the groups that commit such crime, but also gaps in knowledge and criminal justice practices as they relate to the investigation, prosecution and adjudication of cases involving this crime.
