Exploring the cyber-organised crime narrative: the hunt for a new bogeyman?
This paper looks at the significance and the scale of the use of the OC representation when it comes to cybercrime and other Internet-facilitated crimes at the European and international level by conducting a document analysis on official outputs of the major security and intelligence agencies, centres, and other relevant organisations addressing the possible intersections between OC, cybercrimes, and internet-facilitated crimes. This contribution problematises the current use of the cyber-OC narrative and shows how this appears insufficient to guarantee a common level of understanding in public and scientific debates. Before moving to the core of this contribution, the following sections provide a concise overview of the existing academic literature dealing with cyber-OC and related problems, showing how evidence-based research is still indecisive as to the degree of organisation of offenders operating in cyberspace.

Abstract

This paper looks at the significance and the scale of the use of the OC representation when it comes to cybercrime and other Internet-facilitated crimes at the European and international level by conducting a document analysis on official outputs of the major security and intelligence agencies, centres, and other relevant organisations addressing the possible intersections between OC, cybercrimes, and internet-facilitated crimes. This contribution problematises the current use of the cyber-OC narrative and shows how this appears insufficient to guarantee a common level of understanding in public and scientific debates. Before moving to the core of this contribution, the following sections provide a concise overview of the existing academic literature dealing with cyber-OC and related problems, showing how evidence-based research is still indecisive as to the degree of organisation of offenders operating in cyberspace.
