About the research agenda
As we all know, with the digitisation of society, crime has also digitised. Digitisation has consequences for the entire spectrum of crime and raises all sorts of questions. For example, are we dealing with a new type of offender, or with the same old offenders who simply moved their activities online? How can potential victims be made resilient against attacks? And who should protect potential victims: the police, commercial cybersecurity companies, or internet service providers?
To date, many of these questions remain unanswered. The aim of this research agenda is to stimulate research on the human factor in cybercrime and cybersecurity. The agenda provides the state-of-the-art of research on the role of the human factor in this field. In addition, examples are given of important research questions and innovative methods and datasets that are needed for future studies.
