Maimon Receives Young Scholar Award for Work in Cybercrime
David Maimon, an associate professor of criminology and criminal justice with an appointment in the Maryland Cybersecurity Center (MC2), has been awarded the 2015 Young Scholar Award from the White-Collar Crime Research Consortium of the National White-Collar Crime Center for his cybercrime research.
Maimon received the award for several cybercrime-related projects. The two major projects the award committee reviewed in conjunction with this award were his honeypot project, in which he studied how hackers behave and respond to situational stimuli during system trespassing events, and his work in the area of copyright infringement.
“I am very thrilled and honored to win this award,” Maimon says. “It means a lot to me to be acknowledged by the community of white-collar crime scholars.”
He will receive the award during the American Society of Criminology annual meeting on Nov. 18 in Washington, D.C.
