A number of malicious activities, such as cyberbullying, disinformation, and phishing, are becoming increasingly serious, affecting the wellbeing of Internet users both financially and psychologically. These malicious activities are inherently socio-technical, and therefore effective countermeasures against them must draw not only from engineering and computer science, but also from other disciplines. To discuss these topics and find appropriate countermeasures, we assembled a group of researchers from a number of disciplines such as computer science, criminology, crime science, psychology, and education. Through five days of brainstorming and discussion, the participants developed a roadmap for future research on these topics, along four directions: modelling the attackers, measuring human behavior, detection and prevention approaches for online threats to adolescents, and understanding unintended consequences of mitigation techniques.
