Cybercriminality is a key challenge for law enforcement agencies and policy-makers due to the complexity of the phenomenon and the various technical and human factors involved.

 

“Booming cybercriminality is causing enormous economic and social costs in our societies across the globe. We need a collective effort to efficiently combat and investigate new trends in cybercrime including the rise of amateur hackers. [...]" says David Wright, Director of Trilateral Research and Co-ordinator of the CC-DRIVER project.

 

The CC-DRIVER project includes 13 partners from nine European countries who have joined forces and launched a €5 million, three-year Horizon2020 project examining the drivers behind cybercriminality in the EU with a special focus on the factors that lead young people to cybercrime.

“Laws are only one aspect in the fight against cybercrime; its insidious problem on society and business, its prevention and mitigation are a shared responsibility for everyone - as is protecting essential services and the fundamental rights and freedoms of citizens,” said Steve Durbin, ISF Chief Executive.

 

The Information Security Forum (ISF) in conjunction with CC-DRIVER, a consortium of 13 partner organisations, released a report detailing new methods to prevent, investigate and mitigate cybercriminal behaviour.

The report lays out a framework of five interrelated elements deemed critical to tackling cybercrime and bolstering cybersecurity capabilities. These involve Strategy and Legislation, Engagement, Enforcement, and Assessment through which policymakers, legislators and law enforcement agencies can gain a holistic view to better grasp the dynamics behind cybercrime.

“Cybercrime is a growing business with new actors and groups entering the field, new marketplaces spawning in the darknet to replace old ones and making it hard to detect these activities, and new services and products emerging to counter new defences," says report co-author Evangelos Markatos, Professor of Computer Science and head of the Distributed Computing Systems and Cybersecurity Lab at FORTH-ICS. "Cybercrime-as-a-Service has led to the era of industrialisation for cybercrime."

 

The new CC-DRIVER report “Landscape study of Cybercrime-as-a-Service” focuses on a wide range of criminal activities being offered in Cybercrime-as-a-Service, such as cryptocurrency laundering and tumbling, bulletproof hosting, Hacking-as-a-Service, Distributed-Denial-of-Service (DDoS) attacks, Spamming, and Social boosters. It also reviews current trends in the cybercrime landscape, such as service models, communication methods, and monetisation.

The CC-DRIVER project aims to examine such drivers behind cybercriminality across the European Union (EU), emphasising the factors that lead young people to cybercrime, as well as cybercrime-as-a-service.


Part of this project is the development of a Vulnerability Self-Assessment Questionnaire (SAQ) that can help Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) and Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) protect themselves from cybercriminals by embarking on cybersecurity defences, organisational measures, cost-benefit considerations and awareness of fundamental rights such as the rights to privacy, protection of personal data and the free movement of persons.

The self-assessment questionnaire, is intended to provide SMEs and CSOs with a comprehensive report on their current security posture and most importantly, recommendations on how to strengthen their security posture.

The rise of cybercrime is a growing concern in today's digital age. The term ‘cybercrime’ refers to criminal activities that are committed using the Internet or other digital technologies. With the widespread use of the Internet and the increasing amount of sensitive information being stored online, cybercrime has become a major threat to individuals, businesses, and governments.


Cybercrime laws can often lag behind the rapid pace of technological advances and the changing nature of cyber threats. This can create challenges for law enforcement agencies, that may struggle to investigate and prosecute cyber criminals effectively.

The CC-DRIVER project has created a cybercrime toolkit for lawmakers to help them with new legislation and concomitant issues. The toolkit’s objective is to provide high level guidance for policymakers on how to assess their cybercrime policy framework relative to their peers, as well as to set minimum standards.

The EU-funded, €5 million CC-DRIVER project has concluded. During its three-year progress, it explicated the human and technical drivers of cybercrime in several reports, conferences, workshops, webinars and journal articles.

David Wright, Trilateral’s Chief Research Officer and coordinator of the project, said, “CC-DRIVER used a multidisciplinary approach from the domains of psychology, criminology, anthropology, neurobiology and cyberpsychology to investigate, identify, understand and explain drivers of new forms of criminality [...] so that Member States, stakeholders and citizens have a shared view of the dimensions of cybercriminality, its impact on our society and economy and what we, collectively and individually, can do to over-come them.”
