SAINT proposes to analyse and identify incentives to improve levels of collaboration between cooperative and regulatory approaches to information sharing.
Analysis of the ecosystems of cybercriminal activity, associated markets and revenues will drive
the development of a framework of business models appropriate for the fighting of cybercrime.
The role of regulatory approaches as a cost benefit in cybercrime reduction will be explored
within a concept of greater collaboration in order to gain optimal attrition of cybercriminal
activities. Experimental economics will aid SAINT in designing new methodologies for the development
of an ongoing and searchable public database of cybersecurity indicators and open source intelligence.
Comparative analysis of cybercrime victims and stakeholders within a framework of qualitative social
science methodologies will deliver valuable evidences and advance knowledge on privacy issues and
Deep Web practices. Equally, comparative analysis of the failures of current cybersecurity solutions,
products and models will underpin a model for greater effectiveness of applications and improved
cost-benefits within the information security industry.
