درباره این کتاب:
Russell Brewer, Melissa de Vel-Palumbo, Alice Hutchings, Thomas Holt, Andrew Goldsmith, and David Maimon present a critique of seven different types of commonly deployed crime prevention interventions which they believe have the potential to be used in tackling cybercrimes (with a specific focus on cyber-dependent offences). Certainly, for this reader, these distinguished authors have fulfilled their aim ‘to make a substantial original contribution’ as to how their chosen crime prevention techniques can be used to tackle offending in the digital realm. Running through their analysis are at least three issues. The first is that cyber-offending and cyber-offenders typically have different characteristics to traditional offline offenders/offences. This complicates the potential application of traditional crime prevention approaches when applied to the digital arena. Second, there is a paucity of research, and in particular evaluations of these prevention approaches in the online world. The third point is that where there is evidence, it often produces mixed results—sometimes interventions work as intended, sometimes not, sometimes their effect is neutral, and sometimes they can make things worse. This book charts a path through these issues by critiquing the available evidence in the offline world, identifying relevant overlaps with activities online, and then exploring the potential for them to be so applied—providing guidance at the same time as to how this might be undertaken most effectively.
