Theme: Cybercrime Research, Policy and Practice: A Southeast Asian Perspective

The ever increase in technological developments in personal computing, smart phone and wireless devices in recent years has created significant challenges in the Southeast Asian region and beyond. This important conference will explore the expansion of technology-enabled crimes and how the experience of Southeast Asian can inform technological, legal and policy responses internationally.

Examples of research issues within these streams include:

a) Research and policy
Results of cybercrime research and discussion of related policy issues, including:

  • Personal information, privacy and identity misuse
  • Intellectual property regulation
  • Illegal content in cyberspace
  • Online dishonesty
  • Regulating the internet of things
  • Sentencing cyber criminals
