Assessing Technology, Methods, and Information for Committing and Combating Cyber Crime [open pdf - 7MB]
"The goal of this report is to provide key insights to the law enforcement community on how to upgrade basic abilities to effectively investigate computer crimes. This report is designed to reduce the 'skill distance' between what computer criminals have learned to successfully commit their crimes and what law enforcers need to know to successfully bring these offenders to justice. By presenting this information in a clear, structured form, we believe great inroads can be made to gain a competitive edge over those who would misuse technology for criminal gain. The information contained in this report serves as a valuable guide to computer crime investigators. Properly implemented, the information should prove instrumental in controlling and preventing the highly damaging crimes committed against large portions of the general public and business community, crimes that, not long ago, would have been impossible to achieve with the ease with which it they can be achieved today."
