New book from Routledge explores hidden world of cybercrime

Cybercrime and Digital Forensics offers a comprehensive and integrative introduction to cybercrime— an increasingly prevalent issue in a digital age. As technology continues to become more sophisticated and accessible, with more people connected than ever before, individuals are utilizing it to secretly engage in socially unacceptable or outright criminal acts. Governments and organisations are also struggling to protect their networks and data against a rising number of attacks. Today, there are now myriad opportunities for wrongdoing and abuse through technology.

This is the first book to bring together the various types of cybercrime, the investigation and detection of cybercrime and the role of digital information, and the wider role of technology as a facilitator for social relationships between deviants and criminals.

It includes coverage of:

computer hacking and digital piracy,
economic crime and online fraud,
pornography and online sex crime,
cyber-bulling and cyber-stalking,
cyber-terrorism and extremism,
digital forensic investigation and its legal context,
cybercrime policy.

This book includes examples of unique events and key figures in offending and quotes from interviews with active offenders.

“ Cybercrime and Digital Forensics is the most thorough and comprehensive introduction to cybercrime and its control that I have come across to date. It is, without doubt, the best of its kind.” — Peter Grabosky, Professor Emeritus, Australian National University, Australia
