Abstract and Keywords

Policing cybercrime through law enforcement and industry mechanisms are complicated processes that involve collaborative responses from various agencies. Due to the complexities involved in responding to cybercrime, many scholars, police administrators, and legislators have advocated for changes in the criminal justice response to online offenses. Furthermore, there is a clear need for improved relations between the public and private sector as they are the primary bodies who own and operate the infrastructure and devices that compose the Internet. Given the intricacies involved in regulating cybercrime, this chapter examines the current state of cybercrime investigation among law enforcement and industry, as well as its perceived benefits and shortcomings. The chapter concludes with a discussion on the challenges, risks, and implications posed by having extralegal efforts in concert with conventional criminal justice procedures in the fight against cybercrime offending and victimization.
