Third-party press on E-CRIME


        • IP finance, September, 2014

E-CRIME and the economic impact of cyber crime in Europe: Monica Lagazio (Associate Partner, Trilateral Research & Consulting LLP), has informed us of the commencement of a new European project, E-CRIME, which focuses on the economic impact of cyber crime [which also touches on criminal aspects of intellectual property right protection] in Europe.


        • Global Security Mag, September, 2014

European Project E-CRIME: Some progress has been made in understanding and managing cyber crime as well assessing its economic impact. Yet much remains to be done. Lack of co-ordination in law enforcement and legislation, lack of common consensus on the nature of cyber crime and lack of knowledge sharing and trust are just some of the issues that both afflict cyber crime responses and cloud our understanding of cyber crime. The European Union is sponsoring a European project called E-CRIME in order to address these well-known problems. E-CRIME focuses on analysing the economic impact of cyber crime and developing concrete measures to manage risks and deter cyber criminals in non-ICT sectors.


        • LSE, June, 2014

The Fight Against Cybercrime: Is cyber-crime as big a threat as rumoured? According to the authors of a report on the financial sector, under-reporting and over-spending are huge issues in the industry. Each year, around four million people in the UK have their identities stolen. This happens in the form of their accounts being hacked or phished to obtain financial details, as well as mortgage, medical insurance and tax refund fraud. There is no doubt that the modern-day dependency on digital communication for bank transactions has made customers more vulnerable, but how serious is the risk?
