Abstract

Both scientists and government officials are actively searching for the most effective measures of victimological prevention and protection of victims of remote theft. At the same time, there is no single terminological approach among Russian scientists to the phenomena under study: cybercrime, digital victimization, and remote theft. Foreign researchers in specialized victimological journals pay considerable attention to the methods of implementation and content of restorative justice. However, there is little research in the field of victimological prevention of remote theft. A significant amount of foreign research in the field of cybersecurity is aimed at implementing general criminological measures to protect both personal and corporate information. Research in recent years has drawn attention to the need for context-oriented microlearning for users of information resources and technologies as a method of teaching cybersecurity. The study conducted by the author and other Russian scientists on the methods of victimization of victims of remote theft allowed us to identify typical victimological situations that are most common in 2023 and predict their development in the future. The victimization scenarios identified are becoming increasingly common and therefore require rapid preventive measures by the state. Most researchers come to the conclusion that victims of remote theft do not have individual victimogenic signs, therefore, it is more necessary to develop measures of general victimological prevention aimed at mass victimization of victims of remote theft. Based on previously conducted Russian and foreign studies, the author proposes to carry out preventive measures in the following areas of general prevention: economic, regulatory, theoretical, practical, technical (technological), informational.
