Cybercrime and Digital Deviance

Cybercrime and Digital Deviance

Author: Roderick S. Graham, 'Shawn K. (Radford University) Smith Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 30/09/2019

Cybercrime and Digital Deviance is a work that combines insights from sociology, criminology, and computer science to explore cybercrimes such as hacking and romance scams, along with forms of cyberdeviance such as pornography addiction, trolling, and flaming. Other issues are explored including cybercrime investigations, organized cybercrime, the use of algorithms in policing, cybervictimization, and the theories used to explain cybercrime. Graham and Smith make a conceptual distinction between a terrestrial, physical environment and a single digital environment produced through networked computers. Conceptualizing the online space as a distinct environment for social interaction links this text with assumptions made in the fields of urban sociology or rural criminology. Students in sociology and criminology will have a familiar entry point for understanding what may appear to be a technologically complex course of study. The authors organize all forms of cybercrime and cyberdeviance by applying a typology developed by David Wall: cybertrespass, cyberdeception, cyberviolence, and cyberpornography. This typology is simple enough for students just beginning their inquiry into cybercrime. Because it is based on legal categories of trespassing, fraud, violent crimes against persons, and moral transgressions it provides a solid foundation for deeper study. Taken together, Graham and Smith's application of a digital environment and Wall's cybercrime typology makes this an ideal upper level text for students in sociology and criminal justice. It is also an ideal introductory text for students within the emerging disciplines of cybercrime and cybersecurity.

This eye-opening work includes a variety of case studies - including the cyber threat landscape in Russia and Brazil. An in-depth discussion is provided on the Russian Business Network's (RBN) role in global cyber crime as well as new evidence on how these criminals steal, package, buy, sell, and profit from the personal financial information of consumers. Armed with this invaluable information, organizations and individuals will be better able to secure their systems and develop countermeasures to disrupt underground fraud.

Ethical Hacking

Ethical Hacking

Author: Alana Maurushat Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 09/04/2019

How will governments and courts protect civil liberties in this new era of hacktivism? Ethical Hacking discusses the attendant moral and legal issues. The first part of the 21st century will likely go down in history as the era when ethical hackers opened governments and the line of transparency moved by force. One need only read the motto we open governments on the Twitter page for Wikileaks to gain a sense of the sea change that has occurred. Ethical hacking is the non-violent use of a technology in pursuit of a cause-political or otherwise-which is often legally and morally ambiguous. Hacktivists believe in two general but spirited principles: respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms, including freedom of expression and personal privacy; and the responsibility of government to be open, transparent and fully accountable to the public. How courts and governments will deal with hacking attempts which operate in a grey zone of the law and where different ethical views collide remains to be seen. What is undisputed is that Ethical Hacking presents a fundamental discussion of key societal questions. A fundamental discussion of key societal questions. This book is published in English. - La premiere moitie du XXIe siecle sera sans doute reconnue comme l'epoque ou le piratage ethique a ouvert de force les gouvernements, deplacant les limites de la transparence. La page twitter de Wikileaks enchasse cet ethos a meme sa devise, we open governments , et sa volonte d'etre omnipresent. En parallele, les grandes societes de technologie comme Apple se font competition pour produire des produits de plus en plus securitaires et a proteger les donnees de leurs clients, alors meme que les gouvernements tentent de limiter et de decrypter ces nouvelles technologies d'encryption. Entre-temps, le marche des vulnerabilites en matiere de securite augmente a mesure que les experts en securite informatique vendent des vulnerabilites de logiciels des grandes technologies, dont Apple et Google, contre des sommes allant de 10 000 a 1,5 million de dollars. L'activisme en securite est a la hausse. Le piratage ethique est l'utilisation non-violence d'une technologie quelconque en soutien d'une cause politique ou autre qui est souvent ambigue d'un point de vue juridique et moral. Le hacking ethique peut designer les actes de verification de penetration professionnelle ou d'experts en securite informatique, de meme que d'autres formes d'actions emergentes, comme l'hacktivisme et la desobeissance civile en ligne. L'hacktivisme est une forme de piratage ethique, mais egalement une forme de militantisme des droits civils a l'ere numerique. En principe, les adeptes du hacktivisme croient en deux grands principes : le respect des droits de la personne et les libertes fondamentales, y compris la liberte d'expression et a la vie privee, et la responsabilite des gouvernements d'etre ouverts, transparents et pleinement redevables au public. En pratique, toutefois, les antecedents comme les agendas des hacktivistes sont fort diversifies. Il n'est pas clair de quelle facon les tribunaux et les gouvernements traiteront des tentatives de piratage eu egard aux zones grises juridiques, aux approches ethiques conflictuelles, et compte tenu du fait qu'il n'existe actuellement, dans le monde, presque aucune exception aux provisions, en matiere de cybercrime et de crime informatique, liees a la recherche sur la securite ou l'interet public. Il sera egalement difficile de determiner le lien entre hacktivisme et droits civils. Ce livre est publie en anglais.
