Written for anyone who wants a basic understanding of Internet crime, this book covers the topic of Internet crime and security, and it specifically focuses on Internet businesses and on government, legal, political, and privacy issues.
In addition, the book describes techniques used to commit Internet crimes, what can be done about them, and what challenges the future may hold. Drawing on decades of experience in high technology and Internet crime investigations, the authors discuss real world problems and solutions for technical and non-technical professionals and the Internet's role in information warfare, and they analyze actual Internet crime cases.
