Crime study into e-payment fraud reported at joint police and industry conference

Andrew Charlesworth, Reader in IT & Law at the University of Bristol Law School, reported findings from a six-month study he undertook on the increasing threat cybercrime poses to the UK’s payment industry. The research, which formed part of a wider two-year EU-funded Skynet project, were disseminated to police officers from national and international agencies, and members of the payments industry, at a conference in London.
