This paper examines the phenomenon of cybercrime, as a serious hazard of new, digital society. Different forms of cybercrime are described, accompanied with up-to-date statistical data. Focus is put on available international legal framework as well as on the major institutional bodies – state or non-governmental – aimed to achieve security in cyberspace. The authors also attempt to evaluate the costs of particular cyber, criminal activities whereas basic ethical issues regarding piracy are also examined. Finally, this work end with the study case elaborating the cyber issue in the Central Asian Republics (Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan).
This casebook explores Internet Law as a coherent if organic whole — integrating the historical sweep of the global Internet’s development with both the opportunities and problems it has brought about. The book is broad and thorough enough to be the primary or sole text for a variety of Internet-related courses, while deep enough to bring students through the important nuances of such doctrinal topics as copyright, privacy and jurisdiction without assuming any particular prior exposure to these subfields

There are an estimated 8.7 billion devices currently connected to the Internet – and each one is a threat to its owner. Computers and computer systems rule our lives, and it is impossible to imagine life without them. But as society has become evermore dependent, both economically and politically, on the electronic flow of information, it has made us vulnerable to the real and destabilizing threat of cyber attack – the extremes of which could see us having to exist without power, vital resources and communications. Confronting this terrifying reality, Cyber Attack explores the digital dangers we face and examines the extremes they could reach. The book also investigates who is responsible and what can be done to protect us. Cyber Attack is written by bestselling author Paul Day, a former hacker turned leading computer security expert, and covers all areas of digital menace. What you learn in this book will make you think again next time you make an online transaction or send sensitive information from your smart phone.
Reports of cyber criminals, “hacktivists” and nation-states accessing sensitive information and disrupting services in both the public and private domains have risen steadily, heightening concerns over the adequacy of cybersecurity measures. Cybersecurity related concerns range from spearfishing attempts and spam, to malware, to illegal or illicit activity on the dark net. More and more cases of successful cyber-attacks are being reported. Financial information, medical records, any and all personal data maintained on computer systems by individuals or by organizations large and small are vulnerable. Mobile, wireless technology presents new opportunities for cyber-attacks. As more devices communicate with one another, from security systems to thermostats, the “Internet of Things” presents a growing target. Social media sites and advertisements also present opportunities for cybersecurity breaches.
