Overview

The Internet, whilst providing a multitude of benefits is, by its very design, an inherently vulnerable global network of computers which has enabled cybercrime to flourish. Worldwide, governments, businesses and home-users are being targeted by a highly organised cybercrime industry.

Cybercrime provides large financial incentives through the theft of personal and corporate information; infringement of copyright; illegal access of computer systems and online child exploitation.

This book explores the impact of technology-enabled crime for the legal profession, by examining the unique aspects of this crime type and the tools and techniques required to investigate and prosecute global cybercrimes.

Key trends and issues are carefully examined through the use of case law and practical examples, which - combined with an extensive glossary - makes this book a must have for all legal practitioners.
