Reports of cyber crime rose 22% in 2009. Such crimes include not only identity theft and fraud, but also malicious attempts to hack into federal infrastructures. While cyber crime is on the rise, there are measures that can be taken to mitigate its effects, and even to prevent it. In Combating Cyber Crime, author Richard Stiennon introduces the concept of cyber crime-what it is, how it has arisen, and what can be done to combat it. This book deals with the rise of criminal organizations on the Internet, their methods, their evolution, and the measures that ecommerce sites, retailers, banks, and individuals are using to avoid loss of intellectual property, money, and reputation. It recounts some of the most important cases in the history of cyber crime and illuminates how these events made significant contributions to the development of cyber crime and the defense against it. The book presents an exciting, entertaining, and accessible account of cyber crime-its history and the current state of the art in cyber crime and cyber defense technology-and it culminates in an outline of what future protection against cyber crime must look like.
