How are criminals perpetrating cybercrime offences across borders? This subject explores cross-border cybercrime and jurisdictional barriers to the pursuit of cybercriminals. Topics include the online underground economy, the Dark Net, digital currencies and cybercrime. It will include the origin and function of Bitcoin, the legal and regulatory treatment of digital currencies and review recent enforcement trends in the criminal arena/new developments in this rapidly evolving topic. How does the lack of boundaries in cyberspace make it more difficult to apprehend and investigate/prosecute suspects? How do nation-states regulate criminal activity of those persons and organizations located abroad? We will focus on the International Cybercrime Convention and international efforts to achieve greater harmonisation of cybercrime laws. We will also look at law enforcement cooperation across international boundaries.
