Overview

Cyber Crime and Cyber Terrorism provides a beginner's introduction to computer crime. It bridges the gap between criminal justice and the technical side of cybercrime, cyber terrorism and information warfare.

Unique in its non-technical coverage of these issues, this text summarizes the types of crimes and terrorist acts committed using computer technology, assesses digital criminals and their motivations, and weighs legal strategies and tactics targeting these types of crime.

The 5th Edition has been heavily revised, both in content and organization. New pedagogical features have been added to each chapter, including chapter objectives, summaries, boxes, review questions and critical-thinking exercises.
