Description

"Cybercrime" focuses on the growing concern about the use of electronic communication for criminal activities and the appropriateness of the counter-measures which are being adopted by law enforcement agencies, security services and legislators to address such anxieties. Fuelled by sensational media headlines and news coverage which have done much to encourage the belief that technologies like the Internet are likely to lead to a lawless electronic frontier, this book aims to provide a considered and balanced perspective to what is an important and contested arena for debate. It looks at legislation, electronic criminal behaviour, privacy and liberty, and the dangers of surveillance. The book explains the basic issues surrounding cybercrime and its impact on society.
