eQuality’s Valerie Steeves was interviewed by The University of Ottawa Faculty of Social Sciences’ Steven Bittle about the implications and context around cybercrime. Steeves highlights the questions that the term raises, as well as the problems that its use highlights, such as the tendency for people to focus on the “cyber” rather than the “crime” (i.e. many crimes have been committed for many years, but have simply made the leap online). In addition, Steeves highlights the ways in which cybercrime has led to the mobilization of surveillance technologies (such as facial recognition, online data collection, etc.) by corporations and governments for their own ends, and the need to protect young Canadians as a justification for ever-increasing surveillance of all Canadians.
