Abstract:Digitization entails a number of risks and to limit the risks of cybercrime and reduce victimization cyber resilience is needed. Since, people underestimate the risks of cybercrime, it is not expected that they are able to perform self-protective behavior in the near future. So, other actors need to increase awareness about cyber risks and thereby reduce the number of cybercrime victims. Before these actors can strengthen cyber resilience, it is necessary to conduct research into the conceptualization of cybercrime, the actors involved in cyber governance and their tasks. To address these topics, two systematic literature reviews were conducted. The results showed that cybercrime is conceptualized as all acts and behaviors that the legislator has made punishable, and norm-exceeding behaviors for which information and communication technology (ICT) is used. The actors involved in cyber governance are the private sector, government, individuals, educational institutes, law enforcement agencies, telecommunication and internet service providers and insurance companies. These actors perform tasks in the prevention, preparation, and suppression phase of cybercrime. Besides these results, three gaps have been found in the literature that require further research.
