Responses to Cyber-Enabled Scams and Fears of Cybercrime: Rethinking the Standard Models

Government strategies have involved adapting counter-terrorism models to all serious and organised crime, including cyber-enabled crimes.  Based on research over the last decade, the aim is to re-examine public policing and public-private partnership policing to consider what may be required to ‘satisfice’ victimisation, repeat victimisation, and fear of cyber scams.


Digital Trust & Security is the University of Manchester’s interdisciplinary Cyber Security research theme (based in the Digital Futures team in Kilburn bldg.). As part of our ongoing event programme, we are inviting speakers from across the UK to speak on a variety of topics relating to our key research clusters.

  • Privacy, Trust, Data Protection
  • Cybercrime, Criminals, Victims
  • Workplace Security
  • Computer Science & Security
  • Advanced Mathematics

Previous speakers include Prof. Chris Hankin (ICL), Prof. Debi Ashenden (Southampton) and former US Secretary of Defence, Michael Chertoff.

Seminars are free to attend, generally last an hour and include Q&A sections. Attendance is open to all so please forward information about this series to students or interdisciplinary colleagues that might be interested in the topic area.
