Cyberspace is opening new avenues for serious crimes targeting organizational assets and public goods. The availability of exploitation kits and easy to access anonymous infrastructures make possible to perform illegal actions such as identity thefts and data breaches by a large number of Internet users. The variety of people and the multiplicity of goals behind computer crimes makes difficult to predict the emerging risks faced by organizations which struggle in defending themselves from both social and technical threats. We will discuss these issues together with domain experts from ICANN and the FBI by emphasizing the implications for IT governance processes and practices.
