Presentation overview

Dr Wynsen Faber

Cybercrime is increasingly transnational, and law enforcement and other competent authorities need to explore other means to counter such criminal activities and offenders such as through public-private partnership. Dr Faber will speak about the effectiveness of the judicial chain, and recent methods in investigating and prosecuting cyber criminal activities and offenders. The Hypothesis Driven Detection of crime (HDD) and Hypothesis Driven Intervention (HDI) methods are experimental, and applied to cybercrime types such as: phishing, internet related child porn and advance fee internet fraud. This method is also currently applied, in part, to money laundering.
