ABSTRACT

Cybercrime: An Annotated Bibliography of Select Foreign-Language Academic Literature   [open pdf - 312KB]

"This bibliography evaluates major academic research studies on the prevalence of cybercrime and government efforts to stem its escalation, written in Chinese, Dutch, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean (Republic of Korea), Russian, Swedish, and Ukrainian. The research studies define the various types of information technology--related crime, or cybercrime; discuss the ways in which cybercrime is uniquely different from traditional crime; and consider cybercrime's link to terrorism. The authors discuss the laws and conventions in force to counter cybercrime, evaluating their effectiveness. They assess the response of law enforcement to the escalation of cybercrime and the preparedness of government agencies to respond to the threats that cybercrime activities pose. In addition, the studies comment on how to achieve a balance between the governments' need to monitor the sharing of personal data and the obligation to protect intellectual property rights and the citizens' right to privacy."
