E-CRIME had two primary objectives:

  1. Measure and analyse the economic impact of cyber crime on non-ICT sectors (e.g.,  transport, energy, finance, health etc) and analyse the criminal structures and economies behind such crimes.
  2. Develop concrete measures and methods to deter possible criminals and to drastically limit the attractiveness of such crimes.

In relation to these main objective, E-CRIME sought to achieve/develop the following:

  • Create a taxonomy and an inventory on crime committed against non-ICT sectors through the use of communication networks.
  • Analyse the criminal structures and economies behind such crimes.
  • Measure and analyse the economic impact of cyber crime on non-ICT sectors.
  • Develop concrete measures and methods to deter possible criminals and to drastically limit the attractiveness of such crimes.
  • Present effective measures for the management of risks related to cyber crime and help businesses to provide crime-proofed applications.
  • Increase the trust and confidence of EU citizens in using cyber applications.
  • Increase the awareness of policymakers,and foster the understanding and the awareness of the non-ICT sectors about the economic impacts of cyber crime and the measures that can be taken to thwart it.
