E-CRIME (the economic impacts of cyber crime) is a three year project that started in April 2014 and will end in March 2017. The aim of the project is to reconstruct the spread and development of cyber crime in non-information and communications technology (non-ICT) sectors from the perspective of its economic impact on the key fabrics (i.e., economic and social) and different levels of European society, while also identifying and developing concrete measures to manage and deter cyber crime.
E-CRIME focuses on:
Mapping the observable developments and effects of cyber crime within and among non-ICT sectors, Member States and diverse stakeholder communities
Assessing existing counter-measures
Measuring the economic impact of cyber crime on non ICT-sectors and
Developing concrete inter-sector and intra-sector solutions to address cyber crime
E-crime is funded by the European Commission, and has ten partners from eight European countries.
