Digital Trust & Security Seminar Series: Dr Alice Hutchings
Date & Time: Wednesday 26th October 2022, 1300 - 1400 (UK). Online seminar with Q&A and discussion.
Summary: Cybercrime is facilitated by anonymous online environments, yet the degree of specialisation required often means there is a need to trade and collaborate with others. This poses a problem: Why trust those who are inherently untrustworthy? We'll explore issues relating to trust and anonymity as they relate to online marketplaces and forums.
Alice Hutchings is an Associate Professor in the Security Group at the Department of Computer Science and Technology, University of Cambridge. She is also the Director of the Cambridge Cybercrime Centre, an interdisciplinary initiative combining expertise from computer science, criminology, and law. The Centre aims to improve the quality and quantity of cybercrime research by collecting cybercrime-related datasets and making them available for academic research through data sharing agreements. Specialising in cybercrime, Alice bridges the gap between criminology and computer science. Her research interests include understanding cybercrime offenders, cybercrime events, and the prevention and disruption of online crime. Her research has been funded by the EPSRC and ESRC, and in 2020, she was awarded an ERC Starting Grant, iCrime, to develop and evaluate cybercrime responses. iCrime consists of four major interconnected components to research cybercrime using the offender, the crime type, the place (such as online black markets), and the response as discrete units of analysis.
