The rapid development in information technology during the last few
decades has not only given us greater opportunities to freely
search for information and contacts. The growth of the Internet has
also created new opportunities for criminal organisations,
political activists and terrorists to threaten individuals,
companies and countries. Individuals and organisations are also
increasingly the targets of attacks and espionage via the web.
There are various kinds of illegitimate and criminal activities.
Every modern state thus has to create strategies and courses of
action in order to protect information, networks and computers that
are vital to society from malicious cyber activities. Creating
secure systems and minimising risks of information being leaked or
tampered with should be a prioritised task. It is also important to
understand what threats arise from the information technological
revolution. The purpose of this book is to give a broad background
to the development of the dark side of the internet and its
consequences. It is not about scaremongering, but about creating
understanding and knowledge and thus preparedness in order to
handle detrimental activities. It describes the changes in progress
and what they may mean to society, companies and individuals as
well as to the military and police.
