Title

High-Tech Crimes Revealed: Cyberwar Stories from the Digital Front

Description

Main Argument: The argument of this book is to help educate people on cyber crimes. Branigan includes stories of hacking, viruses, identity theft, etc. in order to understand them. The goal is to inform readers about why and how hackers conduct cyber attacks.

Style: Popular Sourcing: No bibliography

Structure: 12 chapters, Appendix

Context in discussion: Many people do not hear from a hacker’s perspective, so Branigan’s book provides an “insider’s” look into hacker motivations. Rather than going into technical detail, the book educates people on more broad issues that hacking and cyber attacks raise.

Context in website: Jeff Moss is the founder of the Black Hat Conference and self identifies as a “hacker” even though he is a professional security expert. He also provides a background look into the mind of a hacker. His speech is here in the Speeches Collection.
