DAPM Stakeholder Event- 22/11/18

DAPM Stakeholder meeting agenda

The Detecting and Preventing Mass-marketing Fraud (DAPM) team would welcome your attendance at our upcoming stakeholder meeting in London on 22/11/18.
This project focuses on understanding why individuals are scammed online, the stages involved in these scams, who is likely to become a victim and how these scams can be detected.

The project, which began in September 2016 and will end in December this year, has been funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council. Academics from the University of Warwick, the University of Bristol, UCL and Cardiff University have been working together on this project.

The stakeholder meeting is a way to disseminate findings across a wide variety of sectors and share knowledge and expertise. Speakers include colleagues from the City of London Police and an ex-Federal Trade Commission expert on consumer fraud. There will also be a focus on the work that has been undertaken as part of the DAPM project, including:

- Psychological impact of cyber fraud on victims
- Automatic and human detection of cyberscams
- Predicting who will be a scam victim
- Characteristics of different types of scams
- Ethics considerations around scams
- Current cyber scam concerns
