The purpose of this panel it is to evoke a discussion that examines how cybercriminals translate methods for stealing data, identities, and money from individuals and organizations from the face-to-face world to an information technology (IT) enabled environment. Specifically, this panel will: 1) give members of the audience an opportunity to learn about contemporary theories of the psychology behind white collar crime (e.g, securities fraud, identity theft, phishing), 2) engage the audience in a discussion of how IT plays a role in enabling transfers of “criminal behavior” from traditional contexts to online contexts, and 3) to review challenges and opportunities for researchers seeking to investigate IT-enabled criminal behavior.
