Online victimization - prevalence, risk factors and consequences

Online victimization - prevalence, risk factors and consequences

(full text only available in Dutch)

Summary

Online crime victimization has become one of the major challenges in our digitalized society. Almost everybody is connected to the internet and exposed to potential online offenders. The goal of this study is to gain more insight in the prevalence, risk factors and consequences of online victimization among Dutch people aged 16 years and older. Online crime can be divided into cybercrime and digitalized crime. Cybercrimes can only be committed using information communications technology (ICT), like computer viruses and hacking. Digitalized crimes are traditional offline crimes that are enabled by an ICT-component, such as online fraud and online harassment.
