Di Nicola, Andrea and Scartazzini, Alessandro (2000) When economic crime becomes organized: the role of information technology. A case study. In «Current issue in criminal justice : journal of the institute of criminology», vol. 11, n. 3 University of Sidney. Faculty of Law.
This comment is based on the idea that economic crime is increasingly committed on an organized basis so that the boundary between economic crime and organized crime is disintegrating. The essential assumption of the comment is that information technology is one of the main factors influencing this process of organization in economic crime. Economic criminals need information technology in order to manage essential and valuable information. The likely consequence of the use of these new technologies is a modification in the way criminals behave and organize. To better develop this idea, this comment looks at a famous and recent Italian case of computer crime: Operation “Ice Trap”.
