Cybercrime now operates like a business. Its goods and services may be illicit, but it is highly organised, complex, driven by profit and globally interconnected. This book examines the underground economy and how it works. In particular, it seeks to make sense of the strategies cybercriminals use to build a thriving industry in a low-trust environment characterised by a precarious combination of anonymity and teamwork.

It is based on seven years of fieldwork in cybercrime hotspots around the world, including in Russia, Ukraine, Romania, Brazil, Nigeria, China and the USA . The core source of data is interviews with almost 250 law enforcement agents, security professionals and former cybercriminals.

Biography Dr Jonathan Lusthaus is Director of The Human Cybercriminal Project in the Department of Sociology and a Research Fellow at Nuffield College, University of Oxford.
