商品描述

The online environment has emerged as a continuous and unfettered source of interpersonal criminal activity beyond physical boundaries. Cyberpredators commit their crimes by employing the Internet and online services-social network platforms, online groups and organizations, smart phone apps, bulletin board systems, online forums, websites, internet relay chat channels-to locate and harm victims of all ages through attacking, exploiting, humiliating, bullying, harassing, threatening, defrauding, and extorting.

Cyberpredators and Their Prey describes non-sexual and sexual interpersonal crimes-online romance scam, swatting, trolling, stalking, bullying, harassment, minor sexting, sexual trafficking, child sexual abuse material, sextortion, and image-based sexual abuse offenses. Each chapter contains: crime definition and relevant issues; typical cyberpredator, motives, and methods; typical victims and behaviors that make them targets; current criminal laws for prosecuting cybercrimes and assessment of their applicability and effectiveness as deterrents; the crime's impact on individual victims and society in general; and cybersecurity prevention and intervention strategies. Also covered are the unique challenges that the regulation, investigation, and prosecution of these cybercrimes pose to criminal justice and private security agents worldwide; the need for society to hold companies operating online responsible for their role in cybercrime; and how aspects of the online environment (i.e., anonymity, toxic disinhibition, de-individuation, inculpability) contribute to harmful and abusive interpersonal interaction, particularly when enacted by perpetrators as part of a group attack.

Key features:

  • Portrays material through multidisciplinary lens of psychology, criminal justice, law, and security
  • Provides consistent, practical information about online criminals and victims
  • Compares online to offline versions of the same crime
  • Discusses adequacy of current laws for prosecuting cybercriminals
  • Considers elements of the online environment that foster criminal activity
  • Describes social engineering techniques
  • Considers the role of intimate partner violence in cybercrimes
  • Reviews 21st century skills needed to educate and protect potential targets

Cyberpredators and Their Prey will prove essential reading to those who are studying to become, or are currently, security professionals; law enforcement personnel and investigators; intelligence agents; private investigators; lawyers; compliance officers; social service workers; and other professionals who deal with interpersonal cybercrime through the lens of social science.

商品描述(中文翻譯)

網絡環境已成為一個持續且無拘無束的跨越實體界限的人際犯罪活動來源。網絡掠奪者通過利用互聯網和在線服務(社交網絡平台、在線群組和組織、智能手機應用程序、佈告板系統、在線論壇、網站、互聯網中繼聊天頻道)來定位和傷害各個年齡段的受害者,通過攻擊、剝削、羞辱、欺凌、騷擾、威脅、詐騙和勒索等手段來犯罪。

《網絡掠奪者與他們的獵物》描述了非性和性的人際犯罪,包括在線浪漫騙局、警察報案詐騙、惡搞、跟蹤、欺凌、騷擾、未成年人發送性內容、性販運、兒童性虐待材料、性敲詐和基於圖像的性虐待罪行。每一章節包含:犯罪定義和相關問題;典型的網絡掠奪者、動機和方法;典型的受害者和使其成為目標的行為;目前用於起訴網絡犯罪的刑法以及評估其作為威懾手段的適用性和有效性;犯罪對個人受害者和社會的影響;以及網絡安全預防和干預策略。還討論了這些網絡犯罪對全球刑事司法和私人安全機構提出的獨特挑戰;社會有必要讓在線運營的公司對其在網絡犯罪中的角色負責;以及在線環境的某些方面(即匿名性、有毒解禁、去個體化、無罪)如何促成有害和虐待性的人際互動,特別是當加害者作為團體攻擊的一部分時。

主要特點:
- 以心理學、刑事司法、法律和安全的多學科視角呈現材料
- 提供關於在線罪犯和受害者的一致、實用信息
- 將在線和離線版本的同一犯罪進行比較
- 討論現行法律對起訴網絡罪犯的適用性
- 考慮促成犯罪活動的在線環境因素
