Overview

The ease of access, relative anonymity, and borderless nature of the Internet has allowed widespread computer-based crime – or cybercrime – to proliferate rapidly. Law enforcement and international security organizations, along with governments and the private sector, have only recently begun to appreciate the scope, severity and transnational nature of this problem. In recent years, organizations have begun to emerge and evolve in a progressively collaborative ecosystem of vested international bodies seeking to address these challenges in unique, innovative ways.

This study attempts to address a series of questions regarding the current state of cyber security. What does the international landscape of cyber security look like today? What are these organizations actually doing? Are they succeeding? What measureable progress has been made in developing a supportive ecosystem of global cyber security? Are these organizations presenting practical, innovative, collaborative, and sustainable solutions to address these issues?

Global Initiatives to Secure Cyberspace: An Emerging Landscape is designed for a professional audience composed of researchers, practitioners and the government, focusing on a secure cyberspace industry. Advanced-level students in computer science will also find this book suitable.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
From the reviews:

"Cybercrime is essentially a transnational crime, with a modus operandi that exploits interstate differences in the capacity to respond to such crimes. … Readers without a lot of time to spare may find this short book an easy (and useful) read, if used as it deserves to be—as a handbook that informs the reader about current initiatives undertaken by international organizational bodies, regional intergovernmental organizations, and public-private and nongovernmental organizations to combat cybercrime." (Kim-Kwang Raymond Choo, ACM Computing Reviews, June, 2009)
