Summary

Cybercrime is on the rise. By definition, cybercrime takes place in the online world. However, people committing cybercrimes are real human beings in an offline environment, often cooperating in networks. Surprisingly little is known about the interplay between the offline and online worlds and the processes leading to the involvement of individuals in cybercriminal networks.

This presentation is about the offline and online social ties of members of cybercriminal networks. In order to gain insight into these ties, 40 cybercriminal networks from the Netherlands, Germany, UK and US were analysed. Social ties still play an important role in the origin and growth of the majority of networks. Forums and online ties, however, also play a significant role in a number of networks, for example, to find specific enablers. Criminals with access to forums, are able to increase criminal capabilities of their network relatively quickly.
