Abstract

Cybercrime is an increasing threat to individuals and organisations across the globe. From phishing to hacking, scamming to grooming, and botnets to cyber-terrorism, the variety and ingenuity of exploits appear to expand constantly. In this context, computer security addresses system vulnerabilities and the preventative measures that may counter cybercrime, including steps to repair system weaknesses and prevent repeat occurrence. In partnership with computer security, cyberforensics investigates digital devices and tackles the detection of computer-based exploits and offences, with a view to securing evidence and proof that illegal activity has taken place. A variety of contemporary perspectives on such issues are presented in the 1st International Conference on Cybercrime, Security and Digital Forensics, held at the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow.
