The emergence of the World Wide Web, smartphones, and Computer-Mediated Communications (CMCs) profoundly affect the way in which people interact online and offline. Individuals who engage in socially unacceptable or outright criminal acts increasingly utilize technology to connect with one another in ways that are not otherwise possible in the real world due to shame, social stigma, or risk of detection. As a consequence, there are now myriad opportunities for wrongdoing and abuse through technology. This book offers a comprehensive and integrative introduction to cybercrime. It is the first to connect the disparate literature on the various types of cybercrime, the investigation and detection of cybercrime and the role of digital information, and the wider role of technology as a facilitator for social relationships between deviants and criminals. It includes coverage of: key theoretical and methodological perspectives, computer hacking and digital piracy, economic crime and online fraud, pornography and online sex crime, cyber-bulling and cyber-stalking, cyber-terrorism and extremism, digital forensic investigation and its legal context, cybercrime policy. This book includes lively and engaging features, such as discussion questions, boxed examples of unique events and key figures in offending, quotes from interviews with active offenders and a full glossary of terms.

Data Mining ist ein inzwischen etabliertes, erfolgreiches Werkzeug zur Extraktion von neuem, bislang unbekanntem Wissen aus Daten. In mittlerweile fast allen gr eren Unternehmen wird es genutzt um Mehrwerte f r Kunden zu generieren, den Erfolg von Marketingkampagnen zu erh hen, Betrugsverdacht aufzudecken oder beispielsweise durch Segmentierung unterschiedliche Kundengruppen zu identifizieren. Ein Grundproblem der intelligenten Datenanalyse besteht darin, dass Daten oftmals in rasanter Geschwindigkeit neu entstehen. Eink ufe im Supermarkt, Telefonverbindungen oder der ffentliche Verkehr erzeugen t glich eine neue Flut an Daten, in denen potentiell wertvolles Wissen steckt. Die versteckten Zusammenh nge und Muster k nnen sich im Zeitverlauf mehr oder weniger stark ver ndern. Datenmodellierung findet in der Regel aber noch immer einmalig bzw. sporadisch auf dem Snapshot einer Datenbank statt. Einmal erkannte Muster oder Zusammenh nge werden auch dann noch angenommen, wenn diese l ngst nicht mehr bestehen. Gerade in dynamischen Umgebungen wie zum Beispiel einem Internet-Shop sind Data Mining Modelle daher schnell veraltet. Betrugsversuche k nnen dann unter Umst nden nicht mehr erkannt, Absatzpotentiale nicht mehr genutzt werden oder Produktempfehlungen basieren auf veralteten Warenk rben. Um dauerhaft Wettbewerbsvorteile erzielen zu k nnen, muss das Wissen ber Daten aber m glichst aktuell und von ausgezeichneter Qualit t sein. Der Inhalt dieses Buches skizziert Methoden und Vorgehensweisen von Data Mining in Echtzeit.

Designed as an introduction and overview to the field, Cyber Forensics: A Field Manual for Collecting, Examining, and Preserving Evidence of Computer Crimes, Second Edition integrates theory and practice to present the policies, procedures, methodologies, and legal ramifications and implications of a cyber forensic investigation. The authors guide you step-by-step through the basics of investigation and introduce the tools and procedures required to legally seize and forensically evaluate a suspect machine. Updating and expanding information on concealment techniques, new technologies, hardware, software, and relevant new legislation, this second edition delineates the scope and goals of cyber forensics to reveal and track legal and illegal activity. Beginning with an introduction and definition of cyber forensics, chapters explain the rules of evidence and chain of custody in maintaining legally valid electronic evidence. They describe how to begin an investigation and employ investigative methodology, as well as establish standard operating procedures for the field and cyber forensic laboratory. The authors provide an in depth examination of the manipulation of technology to conceal illegal activities and the use of cyber forensics to uncover them. They discuss topics and issues such as conducting a cyber forensic investigation within both the local and federal legal framework, and evaluating the current data security and integrity exposure of multifunctional devices. Cyber Forensics includes details and tips on taking control of a suspect computer or PDA and its "operating" environment, mitigating potential exposures and risks to chain of custody, and establishing and following a flowchart for the seizure of electronic evidence. An extensive list of appendices include websites, organizations, pertinent legislation, further readings, best practice recommendations, more information on hardware and software, and a recap of the federal rules of civil procedure.

Nischenmarketing als Strategie im Electronic Commerce

Magisterarbeit aus dem Jahr 2009 im Fachbereich BWL - Marketing, Unternehmenskommunikation, CRM, Marktforschung, Social Media, Note: 3, Universität Wien, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: In der vorliegenden Diplomarbeit wird die Thematik des Nischenmarketing als Erfolgs Strategie im Electronic Commerce behandelt.Ausgehend davon, dass immer mehr Konsumenten sich von Ihren Mitmenschen unterscheiden und abheben wollen gehen immer mehr Autoren davon aus, dass der Ruf nach Nischenprodukten auch im Electronic Commerce stärker wird. Dementsprechend liegt es an den Unternehmen der Zukunft diese Nischen im Electronic Commerce zu entdecken und die neue Kundenbedürfnisse schnell zu erfüllen.Einer der Autoren, welche den Ruf nach der Nische einem internationalen Publikum zugänglich gemacht hat,ist Chris Anderson mit seiner Theorie des Long Tails. Hauptaussage dieser Theorie ist, dass alle Nischenprodukte in der Summe stärker nachgefragt werden als die wohlbekannten Bestseller. Als Ursache dafür sieht er den technologischen Wandel durch die rasante Entwicklung des Internets und der daraus resultierenden Tatsache, dass jedem Kunden jederzeit alle gewünschten Produkte von jedem Ort der Welt aus zugänglich sind. Chris Anderson sieht in seiner Long Tail Theorie eine „Ökonomie des Überflusses“: Der natürliche Engpasse, der zwischen Angebot und Nachfrage entsteht und bis dato beide Faktoren steuerte, verschwindet zunehmenst. Anderson fragt sich: „Was passieren würde, wenn alle Nischenprodukte addiert einen Markt ergeben würde, der so groß ist wie der Markt für Hits, wenn nicht sogar noch größer?“ (Anderson, 2006; S.6) Zweifellos hat die Theorie des Long Tails einen starken Einfluss auf die zukünftigen Strategien der Electronic Commerce Unternehmen. Sowohl auf Preisstrategien als auch auf Marketingstrategien. Zusätzlich dazu schafft die Long Tail Theorie zusätzliche Effekte, welche sich auf die Strategie der Unternehmen auswirken können und in dieser Diplomarbeit behandelt werden sollen. Natürlich gibt es auch heftige Kritik an dieser Theorie und Gegenhypothesen dazu, welche ebenso in der Arbeit erwähnt werden sollen. Als Beispiel kann hier die von Anita Elberse durchgeführte Studie „Das Märchen vom Long Tail“ genannt werden, als auch die von dem Soziologen William N.Mc.Phee aufgestellte Thesen zum Konsumentenverhalten, welche er in seinem Buch „Formal Theories of Mass Behavior“ beschreibt.
