Online crimes
This lecture on online crimes examines the different types of crimes that take place online, how these are similar and different to their offline counterparts (if indeed there is an offline counterpart), the type of person affected by the crime, the ways ICTs are used in the crime and the psychological impact of the crime. The research findings from the grant are used to provide an in-depth analysis of one such crime (by way of illustration). This lecture is given to Masters students enrolled in the MSc New Media at the University of Leicester.
