Presented below are those Deliverables produced by the E-CRIME research consortium that have been released for public dissemination. The E-CRIME project consists of ten Work Packages (WPs). Each of these WPs will produce several deliverables. Upon completion of the relevant work, copies of deliverables for publication will be posted here. To stay up-to-date with the project, please check this page regularly or contact us.
All deliverables produced by the E-CRIME research consortium and uploaded onto this website have been assessed and cleared for public dissemination by the E-CRIME Security Committee.
Work Package 2: Mapping cyber crime
The objectives of this work package are to: investigate definitions of cyber crime and provide a conceptual framework and categorisation of cyber crime in non-ICT sectors to be used by the project; to develop an inventory of crime committed against non-ICT sectors through the use of communication networks; to analyse the structure of cyber crime networks, their interactions and the economics and criminal revenue streams that support these networks; and to develop perpetrator and victim journeys.
Deliverable 2.1: Report on taxonomy and evaluation of existing inventories
Work Package 3: Assessing existing policies and counter-measures
The objectives of this work package are to: provide an overview of current cyber crime technologies and technological trends, their interactions and their effectiveness in deterring cyber crime; assess the dominant policies, regulatory and enforcement frameworks and best practices in selected Member States and at the EU level concerning cyber crime; monitor technology and policy development during the project lifetime.
Work Package 4: Framework for economic impact and analysis
The objectives of this work package are to: develop a theoretical framework and hypotheses about the impact of cyber crime on non-ICT sectors; develop an appropriate survey methodology for capturing citizens’ views on the economic impact of cyber crime on non-ICT sectors and monitor survey data; gather industry stakeholder views on the economic impact of cyber crime on non-ICT sectors.
Deliverable 4.1: Methodology of the survey and data collection
Work Package 5: Survey implementation
The objective of this work package is to conduct a public telephone survey in six selected Member States (Italy, Germany, UK, Estonia, Netherlands, Poland) on the economic impact of cyber crime and prevalence of cyber crime at the societal level. Approximately 1,000 persons will be interviewed in each of the six selected Member States, which includes a quota of 250 people per Member State who have been the victim of cyber crime.
Deliverable 5.1: Survey data files (these files have been uploaded onto DANS: an open-access research data repository hosted within the EU and can be accessed here).
Work Package 6: Measuring the direct and indirect economic impact of cyber crime
The objectives of this work package are to: develop an economic model to measure the economic impact of cyber crime on non-ICT sectors; calibrate the economic model with our data; validate the model with stakeholders and partners.
Deliverable 6.1: Report on model development and adequacy of existing modes and data
Work Package 7: Identifying gaps and solutions re cyber crime
The objectives of this work package are to: integrate, combine and compare results from previous work packages (WPs 2, 3, 4, 5 & 6); based on the integration, identify gaps and solutions for developing measures against cyber crime across sectors; validate opportunities with stakeholders.
Deliverables 7.1: Report on opportunities for fighting cyber crime across non-ICT sectors
Deliverables 7.2: Validation report on opportunities across non-ICT sectors
Work Package 8: Enhancement of sector specific risk management counter-measures
The objectives of this work package are to: develop sector-specific operational risk management methods and tools; identify sector-specific technological advancements for crime-proofed applications and counter-measures; develop sector-specific measures for deterring cyber crime through institutional responses, enhancements of industry best practices and awareness, trust and confidence initiatives.
Deliverable 8.3: Report on recommendations for regulatory innovation and measures
Deliverable 8.4: Report on sector specific enhancements in industry best practices
Deliverable 8.6: Project final report
