Conférencier: Jonathan Lusthaus

Jonathan Lusthaus is Director of The Human Cybercriminal Project in the Department of Sociology and a Research Fellow at Nuffield College, University of Oxford. He recently completed a seven-year global study on the organisation of cybercrime published by Harvard University Press as Industry of Anonymity: Inside the Business of Cybercrime.

Summary

Cybercrime now operates like a business. Its goods and services may be illicit, but it is highly organized, complex, driven by profit, and globally interconnected. This talk examines the underground economy and how it works. In particular, it seeks to make sense of the strategies cybercriminals use to build a thriving industry in a low-trust environment characterized by a precarious combination of anonymity and teamwork. It is based on 7 years of fieldwork in cybercrime hotspots around the world, including in Russia, Ukraine, Romania, Brazil, Nigeria, China and the USA. The core source of data is interviews with almost 250 law enforcement agents, security professionals and former cybercriminals.
