Masterclass Synopsis

The routinisation and pervasiveness of internet use has made certain types of internet-based crimes for economic gain possible, and has facilitated immensely the scale of others. Cyberspace is constantly evolving for an extensive range of functions, services and products but is now attracting a wide range of criminal activity that exploits weaknesses in procedures that threatens to outstrip preventative and other measures for control protection. The increased vulnerabilities to organisations can, however, be identified and anticipated so long as organisations keep up-to-date with trends and effective responses – approaches that inform this practitioner-based seminar.
