Cybercrime: Security and Surveillance in the Information Age

Hardcover (Print)
Not Available on BN.com
 

Overview

"Cybercrime focuses on the growing concern about the use of electronic communication for criminal activities and the appropriateness of the countermeasures that are being adopted by law enforcement agencies, security services and legislators to address such anxieties. Fuelled by sensational media headlines and news coverage which has done much to encourage the belief that technologies like the Internet are likely to lead to a lawless electronic frontier, Cybercrime provides a more considered and balanced perspective on what is an important and contested arena for debate. It will provide an understanding of the basic issues relating to cybercrime and its impact on society." "This book will be essential reading for students of criminology, public administration, politics, sociology and social policy."--BOOK JACKET.
