Provides a general yet original overview of cybercrime and the legal, social, and technical issues that cybercrime presents.
Understanding and Managing Cybercrime is accessible to a wide audience and written at an introductory level for use in courses that focus on the challenges having to do with emergence, prevention, and control of high tech crime. It takes a multidisciplinary perspective, essential to full appreciation of the subject and in dealing with this very complex type of criminal activity. The text ties together various disciplines–information technology, the sociology/anthropology of cyberspace, computer security, deviance, law, criminal justice, risk management, and strategic thinking.
One reviewer writes, “The book provides an excellent introduction into what cybercrime is, why we need to be concerned about it and what can, and is, being done about it.” Another reviewer describes Understanding and Managing Cybercrime as, “a major contribution to the emerging study of cybercrime and information security.”
