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.
