Overview

Today's criminals need little more than a computer and on Internet link. They may be cyber vandals who case great damage to the computer systems of companies or governments, cyber thieves, or even terrorists.

Modern forensic scientists have to respond by investigating a liking of unseen electron data and digital information. They may be searching for hackers who try to disrupt computer networks or criminals who try to get by stealing information or other people's identities. With many examples and case studies, Cyber Crime Secrets shows how these specialists go about their important exciting work.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Hazel Buys
Much of modern crime involves the use of computers that are used to generate electronic data and digital information. Specialists in digital forensics investigate computer evidence and the crimes they investigate are called cyber crimes. Any electronic equipment is subject to cyber crime. Case studies of cyber vandalism, computer viruses, hacking, cyber theft and identity theft are based on actual events and add realism and interest. The investigative techniques that solved each type of crime illustrate the many tools and approaches available to cyber criminologists. Sidebars labeled "Did You Know?" add specific information that expands the text. Color photographs and well-designed graphics support each two-page spread. Words printed in bold are defined in the glossary. This book is one in the "Amazing Crime Scene Science" series and concludes with a glossary, an index and a list of websites titled "Web Finder." Townsend's book targets a fourth through eighth-grade school population, advising a word of caution: some case studies are about missing/murdered children. Townsend's book would be a good addition to an upper elementary or a middle school library or class on forensics, computer ethics or criminology. Reviewer: Hazel Buys
