Thirty-three countries, including the United States, have signed the Council of Europe's Convention on Cybercrime of November 2001. The Convention's goal is to combat cybercrime by harmonising national laws, improving investigative abilities and boosting international co-operation. Supporters argue that the Convention will enhance deterrence, while critics counter that it will have little effect without the participation of countries in which cybercriminals operate freely. Others warn that it will endanger privacy and civil liberties. This invaluable book addresses the issues of fighting cybercrime and evaluates measures undertaken by various governments to prevent these attacks from happening. America, Russia, Korea, Netherlands, Japan, Israel and France, are specifically discussed.
