Date & time
How easy is it to become a cybercrime victim? How safe and easy is it to purchase illicit products on the internet?
The ANU Cybercrime Observatory will tackle these questions and discuss their recent work, including:
• A small observation study of ANU university students which tested their vulnerability to email scams. This illustrates why the risks of cybercrime continue to elude technical solutions.
• A reconnaissance of DARKNET crypto-markets which shows the scale and scope of the many illicit services and products now on-line. Synthetic opioids will be used as a specific example of market disruption and criminal innovation.
• How DARKNET sources provide opportunities for law enforcement intelligence and contribute to targeted operations.
The connections between crime and crypto-markets and other on-line market forms will be illustrated. The panel will discuss feasible options for combating these.
