Economic impacts of Cybercrime

E-Crime is a 36-month project looking at addressing problems linked with cybercrime, while analysing the economic impact of cybercrime and developing concrete measures to manage risks and deter cyber criminals in non-ICT sectors. E-CRIME does so by adopting an interdisciplinary and multi-level-stakeholder focused approach that fully integrates a wide range of stakeholders’ knowledge and insights into the project. The project will create a detailed taxonomy and inventory of cybercrime in non-ICT sectors and analyse cybercriminal structures and economies. E-CRIME will assess existing counter-measures. The ten project partners will develop a multi-level model to measure the economic impact of cybercrime on non ICT-sectors. E-CRIME will then integrate all its previous findings to identify and develop diverse, concrete counter-measures, combined in portfolios of inter-sector and intra-sector solutions, including enhancement for crime-proofed applications, risk management tools, policy, law enforcement interventions and best practices, and trust and confidence measures. Trilateral is the Project Co-ordinator for E-CRIME and participates in all the associated work packages.
