About this book

This book is about the human factor in cybercrime: its offenders, victims and parties involved in tackling cybercrime. It takes a diverse international perspective of the response to and prevention of cybercrime by seeking to understand not just the technological, but the human decision-making involved.

This edited volume represents the state of the art of research on the human factor in cybercrime, addressing its victims, offenders, and policing. It originated at the Second annual Conference on the Human Factor in Cybercrime, held in The Netherlands in October 2019, bringing together empirical research from a variety of disciplines, and theoretical and methodological approaches.

This volume will be of particular interest to researchers and students in cybercrime and the psychology of cybercrime, as well as policy makers and law enforcement interested in prevention and detection.

About the authors

Dr. Marleen Weulen Kranenbarg is an assistant professor at VU Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Her research mostly focuses on cyber-dependent offenders. In her doctoral dissertation she empirically compared traditional offenders to cyber-offenders on four important domains in criminology: 1. offending over the life-course, 2. personal and situational risk factors for offending and victimization, 3. similarity in deviance in the social network, and 4. motivations related to different offense clusters. She recently started a large-scale longitudinal study into actual vs. perceived cybercriminal behaviour of offline vs. online social ties among youth. Marleen is also a research fellow of the NSCR (Netherlands Institute for the Study of Crime and Law Enforcement), board member of the ESC Cybercrime Working Group, and part of the steering committee of the IIRCC (International Interdisciplinary Research Consortium on Cybercrime).
Dr. Rutger Leukfeldt is Senior Researcher and the cybercrime cluster coordinator at the Netherlands Institute for the Study of Crime and Law Enforcement (NSCR) and Academic Director of Centre of Expertise Cybersecurity of the Hague University of Applied Sciences. His work focusses on the human factor in cybercrime and cybersecurity. Recent examples include studies into pathways into cybercrime, organized cybercrime and risk profiles of cybercrime victims. Over de past decade, Rutger worked on various studies for public and private organizations. Furthermore, he received a Marie Curie Individual Fellowship (EU grant for promising researchers) and a Veni grant (Dutch grant for highly promising researchers) to carry out a study into cybercriminal networks. Rutger is currently the chair of the Cybercrime Working Group of the European Society of Criminology (ESC).
