The Midlands Fraud Forum has commissioned this work using students from the University of Derby.
MFF would be interested to have your feedback on this initiative; please email any comments to firstname.lastname@example.org
The aim of this project was to engage one or two undergraduate students to conduct a literature review for the benefit of the Midlands Fraud Forum (MFF). The topic area of cybercrime was defined broadly but in connection with fraud/financial/economic crime to foster relevance for the membership.
Practitioners are often very engaged in the business of moving from one operation to the next. Many may not be aware of literature on selected topics associated with their interests. Awareness and engagement with academic research may be even more difficult for the practitioner audience given chronic time management issues to identify, retrieve and read appropriate works.
