    April 2010 Faculty Briefs

    Professor Susan Brenner's latest book, Cybercrime: Criminal Threats from Cyberspace, is now available. Published by Praeger, Cybercrime offers an overview of cybercrime and an in-depth discussion of the legal and policy issues surrounding it. Enhancing her narrative with real-life stories, Brenner traces the rise of cybercrime from mainframe computer hacking in the 1950s to the organized, professional, and often transnational cybercrime that has become the norm in the 21st century. She also considers the tension between improving law enforcement¿s ability to pursue cybercriminals and protecting the privacy of U.S. citizens.
