In this concluding chapter, we consolidate the broad spectrum of challenges discussed throughout this book towards the formulation of a number key priority topics to be addressed by future research related to cybercrime and cyberterrorism. During this process many of the specific areas that need to be addressed are defined across four interlinked dimensions; technological, regulatory, organisational and human. In the process of identifying the nature of the challenges posed, the scope of the research and initiatives needed in order to progress measures targeting them, as well as the required impacts needed in order to ensure the significance of those initiatives. Initial sections of the chapter recapture, from a definitional perspective, the definitions of cybercrime and its constituent elements towards establishing a harmonised taxonomy of terms that we can use to inform the future work being proposed.
