Dr Richard Overill, Senior Lecturer in the Department of Informatics, was interviewed for the Forensic Focus website. Forensic Focus is a website aimed at digital forensics professionals.

Richard talked about his research on cyber crime and discussed his recently published paper “The ‘Inverse CSI Effect’: Further Evidence from E-Crime Data” (PDF here), which was published in the International Journal of Electronic Security and Digital Forensics. The paper discusses representations of cyber crime in television programs such as CSI and how this has influenced the behaviours of cyber criminals. Data suggests that cyber crime has become more sophisticated with increased occurrences of Serious Organised Cyber Crime and less incidences of smaller cyber-crimes.

Richard noted that “Since CSI was first aired, the US Computer Security Institute's annual surveys of the numbers of reported incidences of cyber crimes has decreased, while the average value of the cyber heists has increased (after correcting for US$ inflation), just as predicted.”
