Listen: Jonathan Lusthaus' Industry of Anonymity - Inside the Business of Cybercrime

Oxford University cybercrime expert Jonathan Lusthaus spent seven years interviewing law enforcement agents, security gurus, hackers and criminals. The result, Industry of Anonymity, is the most extensive account yet of the lives of cybercriminals and the vast global business they have created. To shed light on this murky underworld, he speaks with James Der Derian, outlining a highly organised profit-driven enterprise, and the informal arrangements that underpin cooperation among anonymous criminals in a low-trust environment.
