About this item
Research on cybercrime has been largely bifurcated, with social science and computer science researchers working on different issues to understand offending and victimization, as well as techniques to harden systems from compromise and understand the tools used by cybercriminals. The literature developed from these two fields is diverse and informative, though there is minimal interdisciplinary scholarship which combines the insights provided from each field to create a more informed and robust body of knowledge. This book offers an interdisciplinary approach to research on cybercrime and lays out frameworks for collaboration between the fields.
Bringing together international experts, this book explores a range of issues from cybersecurity and cyberwar to hacking and victimization to identity and banking fraud. This book also provides direction for policy changes to both cybersecurity and criminal justice practice based on the enhanced understanding of cybercrime that can be derived from integrated research from both the technical and social sciences.
