Topic: The relationship between cybercrime and cybersecurity
Jointly hosted by AISA and CSRI, please join Chad Whelan, who is a Professor in Criminology at Deakin University for an online presentation discussing his paper on the relationship and boundaries between cybercrime and cybersecurity.
Cybercrime is an umbrella concept used to refer to traditional crimes that are enhanced via the use of networked technologies and newer forms of crime that would not exist without networked technologies. Cybersecurity is a similarly broad concept and diverse field of practice. For computer scientists, the term ‘cybersecurity’ typically refers to policies, processes and practices undertaken to protect data, networks and systems from unauthorised access. It is used in subnational, national and transnational contexts to capture a broad array of potential threats or harms.
Join this webinar to consider the ways in which cybercrimes are increasingly being presented as threats to cybersecurity and the implications of this for the provision of cybersecurity. As well as explore how cybersecurity would benefit from much greater conceptualisation.
Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions. This webinar will be recorded and the recording will be made available to registrants.
Speaker: Professor Chad Whelan
Chad Whelan is Professor in Criminology at Deakin University. He conducts research on organised crime, terrorism, cyber-crime and security, and multi-agency responses to such problems across organisational boundaries and professional disciplines. Much of his research adopts a network perspective to understanding crime and security problems and responses to those problems. His criminological research has been funded by nationally competitive grants and cooperative research centres. Recent publications have appeared in journals such as the British Journal of Criminology, Criminology and Criminal Justice, Journal of Criminology, Police Practice and Research, and Policing and Society.
