  • Impact of cyber crime
  • Governance of technology
  • Intersection of technology, crime and society

The following can be attributed to Professor Phair:

“This is a great day not just for Australian policing, but also the international coordination of cyber crime investigations.  

 

“These types of investigations are very important as the emergence of cybercrime-as-a-service platforms like LabHost not only proliferate, but also reduce the barriers to entry for cyber criminals.

 

“This investigation also demonstrates there are plenty of cyber criminals located in Australia, making it easier for Australian police to combat this ever growing type of crime.”
