Overview

For courses in computer crime.

A complete, easy-to-understand introduction to computer crime
Cyber Crime and Cyber Terrorism is a comprehensive introduction to the acts and theories of cyber crime, cyber terrorism, and information warfare. Assuming no prior knowledge of technology, the authors cover the types of crimes and terrorist acts committed using computer technology, theories addressing hackers and other digital criminals, and investigative, research, and legal strategies targeting these acts. Like no other on the market, the text bridges the gap between criminal justice knowledge and the technical issues that arise during investigations of cyber crime. The 4th edition adds material on new technologies and trends, plus updated review questions and activities.
