Abstract

In an age when computer crime is growing at a exponential rate and on a global scale, industry and government leaders are increasingly reliant upon answers from the academic and IT Security fields in order to keep cyber crime in check, and be ahead of the “cyber criminal curve.”

Corporate Hacking and Technology-Driven Crime: Social Dynamics and Implications addresses various aspects of hacking and technology-driven crime, including the ability to understand computer-based threats, identify and examine attack dynamics, and find solutions. Including findings from experts in Criminal Justice, Business, and Information Technology Security from around the world, this book presents current research undertakings and findings in order to find interdisciplinary solutions to the complex domain of cyber crime and network breaches.
