Cybercrime is one of the fastest growing areas of crime, estimated to cost the world over $110 billion annually. The global nature of today’s interconnected networks and systems means that criminals can act from anywhere in the world against any target. As more and more of our lives are online through smartphones, the cloud, and other innovative technologies, we are seeing an emerging trend of criminal syndicates and other organized groups increasingly becoming involved in cybercrime and cyber attacks. While addressing cybercrime and cyber attacks is a priority of policy makers, there lacks consensus on how to protect networks and systems effectively and what laws – both substantive and procedural – should be in place to combat the economic disruptions caused by cybercrime. Are there norms, standards, and laws that policymakers and stakeholders can agree upon to stop this growing problem?
Please join the Center for National Policy for a panel discussion of this growing issue.
