Alain Claude Tambe Ebot is assistant professor of information systems at the Paul H. Chook Department of Information Systems and Statistics at Baruch’s Zicklin School of Business. He received his Doctor of Science (Econs) in Information Systems from the Faculty of Information Technology at the University of Jyvaskyla, Finland. He holds an MSc (Econs) in Accounting & Information Systems from Hanken School of Economics, Finland, and a BSc (Hons) in Applied Accounting from Oxford Brookes University, UK. His research interests are in behavioral information security where he studies victims and offenders of social engineering attacks. He has interviewed active cyber-offenders and former offenders who perpetrate advance fee fraud scams as well as victims of phishing attacks. His work draws on theories in criminology and psychology. The overarching goals are to understand why people engage in online offenses, how the digital environment facilitates such offenses, why individuals are victimized by cyber-offenders, and developing measures to curb online offending and online victimization.
