Cybercrime and the Darknet

Neither cybercrime nor the darknet are straightforward – they are a morass of contradictions and grey areas. Cybercriminal activity occurs on the surface net: harassment, copyright infringement, fraud, subversion, sabotage and terrorist propaganda.

Cath examines some of these complexities in the book.
