Booming cybercriminality is causing serious social harm and enormous economic costs to our communities. This complex phenomenon poses a great challenge for law enforcement agencies (LEAs) and policymakers across the globe as it evolves at a fast pace and knows no borders. But who are the perpetrators of cybercrimes and what is their motive? Worryingly, there is a rise of amateur hackers. What are the reasons behind it and how can we prevent it? How could we improve our abilities to prosecute cybercriminals and defend potential victims?
The CC-DRIVER project proposes that we need to partner in our fight against cybercrime and understand better the human and technical drivers behind its new forms with a special focus on juvenile delinquency.
CC-DRIVER will focus on these key aspects:
Trilateral Research is the coordinator of the project and is leading on ethics, data protection and social impact research.
Our work focuses on conducting an integrated ethical, data protection and social impact assessment of the cybersecurity ecosystem in order to build public trust for the use of technology.
Trilateral Research is also contributing to the research dissemination and communication in order to raise awareness of CC-DRIVER and its findings among stakeholders and enhance its impact.
Key outputs of the project are:
The expected impact of CC-DRIVER is based on ground-breaking interdisciplinary research informing the development and use of a set of investigation, policy and vulnerability assessment toolkits:
The combination of CC-DRIVER research findings and innovation tools will contribute to enhance legal cohesion and security, improve collaboration among LEAs, support evidence-based policymaking, raise public awareness of cybercrime threats, and, ultimately, reduce social harms and economic costs of cybercrimes.
