 Cyber Fraud: Tactics, Techniques and Procedures 

Editor-in-Chief James Graham 

 

 

 Description:  

 
Arguably one of the most important challenges of the 21st century, with millions lost each year, cyber crime has evolved from a minor nuisance to a major concern involving well organized actors and highly sophisticated organizations. Combining the best of investigative journalism and technical analysis, Cyber Fraud: Tactics, Techniques and Procedures documents changes in the culture of cyber criminals and explores innovations that are the result of those changes. The book uses the term botnet as a metaphor for the evolving changes represented by this underground economy.

Copiously illustrated, this authoritative volume:
 

Examines economic vulnerability models in the market and analyzes how they affect vendors, end users and vulnerability researchers

Outlines a conceptual model of the structures, functions and roles of actors and organizations within this illicit marketplace

Discusses the roles of white hats and black hats in the underground culture

Addresses the developing maturity of malcode communication and the preventative measures organizations can take

Discusses Trojan software, specifically designed by hackers, used to target the financial sector

Outlines the necessary countermeasure expenditures that should be considered by organizations

 
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 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 for consumers. Armed with this invaluable information, organizations and individuals will be better able to secure their systems and develop countermeasures to disrupt underground fraud.
