Digitization of organized crime

(Full text only available in Dutch)


The digitization and the massive use of the internet have drastically changed society over the past decades. Heavy and organized crime has not remained unaffected. Criminals can contact each other easily through the Internet and ICT in the broader sense while protecting their identity. In addition, providers and buyers of illegal goods and services can do business from behind their desk. Moreover, the range of potential victims of, for example, payment fraud has increased significantly and there are new possibilities for laundering criminal earnings. This digitization of heavy and organized crime is the theme of this issue of Justitiƫle verkenningen.
