To PhD or not to PhD: Doctor’s orders

Press/Media: Blogs and social media


What does a PhD in cybercrime or cybersecurity do to you and how can you get through the process? With the help of five people that are well on their way to a PhD in their respective fields, we will attempt to find out more about the adventure of a doctorate in cyber. In a three-part mini-series we share some perspectives on the experience of this level of study. In this the final part of the series, we find out how the doctoral process changes people, discuss the balance between guidance and freedom in learning to be an independent researcher, how to deal with impostor syndrome and we will receive some sage advice.

    DescriptionCybercrimeology is a podcast about cybercrime, its research and its researchers. We talk to top researchers from around the world to learn about different forms of cybercrime and their research. We learn about cybercrime theory, organized crime online, Darknet drug markets, cybercrime awareness and crime prevention, technology-facilitated intimate partner violence and much more. The podcast has been running since November of 2019 and there is still so much to learn. I am happy to have you along for the journey into this fascinating subject.
