Abstract

What are grand challenges of cybercrime and cyberterrorism
policy and research for the coming one or two decades? To answer this question, we first need to grasp some major trends that influence the future of cybercrime and cyberterrorism, and the combatting thereof, in fundamental ways. This chapter therefore starts with sketching seven megatrends in technology and society: Internet as the nfrastructure of everything, autonomic technologies, datafication, the onlife world, the transformation of crime, the fourth generation of cybercrime as attacks on the Internet of Things and People, and the gradual erosion of privacy. Against this background, seven grand challenges for keeping societies secure and inclusive against the threats of CC/CT are presented: underground marketplaces, hiding technologies, ubiquitous data, smart regulation, smart organisation, designing technology, and preserving the human rights framework in a volatile context.
