Cyber-Crime in Context

Lecture Theatre 002, Ground Floor, Business and Law Building, City Campus East


Professor Tim Wilson, Professor of Criminal Justice Policy 

Northumbria School of Law

Refreshments will be served in the Lecture Theatre Breakout Area (Ground Floor) from 5pm. The lecture will take place from 5.30pm - 6.30pm.

Professor Tim Wilson will discuss cyber-enabled or -enhanced crime, especially when facilitated by anonymised communication networks. After analysing the nature of such crimes, he will consider the extent to which this has created new problems for the police and other criminal justice professionals. He will also discuss how changes in offending have coincided with exceptional pressures on policing because of digital technology, fiscal austerity and uncertainties about international cooperation as a result of Brexit.

Professor Wilson came to Northumbria University after a career in the Senior Civil Service (mainly the Home Office, but also HM Treasury and the Ministry of Justice). This background and his membership of the University’s internationally acclaimed research centre, the Centre for Evidence and Criminal Justice Studies (NCECJS), gives him a distinctive voice on the criminal justice interface with science, technology, economics and politics. He and four NCECJS colleagues are currently engaged in internationally funded research into cyber crime in partnership with the Dutch Open University, the Politihøgskolen (The Norwegian Police University College) and Stockholm University.

This lecture is part of the Police Research and Education Network series that will draw upon leading research expertise within Northumbria University. Each seminar will provide an opportunity for staff to present their research findings on key topics for contemporary policing, reflecting on the challenge of developing evidence based for police practice.

The seminars are free to attend. They will be informal and are designed to promote debate between academics and practitioners from the police and other relevant agencies.
