Program Co-Chair Dr. Tyler Moore said, “Fighting e-crime requires more than a purely technical approach, and this year’s program reflects that: in addition to papers from computer scientists, we will hear the perspectives of economists, criminologists and political scientists. The breadth of topics presented is also great. Topics include underground markets, malware, counterfeit goods, money laundering with digital currencies, online dating crimes, and of course, phishing.”
