Cybercrime Support Network
Cybercrime Support Network (CSN) is a public-private, nonprofit collaboration created to meet the challenges facing millions of individuals and businesses affected each and every day by cybercrime.
The number of individuals who reported a cybercrime incident in 2017 represents an estimated 15 percent of those who were actually impacted.
As the number and impact of cybercrime incidents continues to grow each year, individual and small business victims struggle to find the help they need, and responses from various law enforcement agencies vary by jurisdiction.
CSN has created a new program - FraudSupport.org - which involves partnerships with law enforcement, cybercrime support organizations, and corporations throughout the United States. We are collaborating to help guide and support cybercrime victims through the reporting and recovering efforts, and then to provide information and resources on how to protect against future incidents.
And soon, cybercrime victims will have one phone number to call to reach a referral specialist who can navigate a victim through the reporting, recovery, and reinforcement process.
CSN’s mission is to improve the plight of Americans facing the ever growing impact of cybercrime by bringing together national partners to support cybercrime victims...
by pointing consumers and businesses to the best information from experts in cybersecurity education and awareness
by enabling a local, one-stop access to get someone on the phone who is empathic and responsive and can direct callers to the appropriate support based on crime type
by providing key contacts to guide in recovery and tools to prevent revictimization
Pillars of CSN's Commitment
Connect cybercrime victims to resources
Bring together law enforcement, nonprofits, government and consumer protection organizations
Educate legislators to improve funding for cybercrime victim services
The Cybercrime Support Network strives to follow these guiding principles in all we do!
Bring a voice to and serve the victims of cybercrime.
Ensure victims are connected to local, state and federal law enforcement when needed.
Work within existing law enforcement and victim assistance systems to enhance service and collaboration.
Provide effective training for Cybercrime first responders.
Promote education and awareness for all citizens.
Create a robust and uniform national data base of cybercrime data.
As a public-private nonprofit organization, CSN has created FraudSupport.org as the first nationwide initiative developed specifically to help cybercrime victims through a process of “Report, Recover, and Reinforce” after an incident occurs.
