Cyber criminals on trial by Russell G Smith( )

17 editions published between 2004 and 2011 in English and held by 1,358 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book provides the first international study of the manner in which cyber criminals have been dealt with by the judicial process, and anticipates how prosecutors will try to bring criminals to the courts in future. It is a sequel to the groundbreaking Electronic Theft: Unlawful Acquisition in Cyberspace by Grabosky, Smith and Dempsey (Cambridge University Press, 2001). Some of the most prominent cases from around the world have been presented in an attempt to discern trends in the handling of cases, and common factors and problems that emerged during the processes of prosecution, trial and sentencing." "This is a valuable resource for all those who seek to understand how the difficult task of convicting cyber criminals can be achieved in a borderless world."--Jacket
Electronic theft : unlawful acquisition in cyberspace by Peter Nils Grabosky( Book )

13 editions published between 2000 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 631 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The convergence of communications and computing has begun to transform Western industrial societies. Increasing connectivity is accompanied by unprecedented opportunities for crimes of acquisition. Electronic Theft names, describes and analyses the range of electronic and digital theft, and constitutes the first major survey of the field." "The authors cover a broad list of electronic misdemeanours, including extortion, defrauding governments, telephone fraud, securities fraud, deceptive advertising and other business practices, industrial espionage, intellectual property crimes, and the misappropriation and unauthorised use of personal information. They have been able to capture impressively large amounts of data internationally from both scholarly and professional sources. The book poses and attempts to answer some pressing questions to do with natural sovereignty, intellectual property and enforceability of laws."--Jacket

Medical discipline : the professional conduct jurisdiction of the General Medical Council, 1858-1990 by Russell G Smith( Book )

9 editions published between 1994 and 2003 in English and held by 201 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book considers whether or not the General Medical Council's professional conduct jurisdiction acts fairly and justly when dealing both with doctors whose conduct it controls, and members of the public whose interests it was established to protect. By looking at the legal history of the Council since its inception in 1858 until the present, it is possible to see how the system of medical discipline in Britain developed, to reveal its present anomalies and problems, and to see how best to improve the system, if, indeed, such a system is worthy of preservation. Questions such as the role of lay members on the Council, the use of lawyers and Legal Assessors in hearings, how medical issues are resolved and standards of conduct set for the profession, are all considered. Over 2,000 disciplinary cases are then surveyed in terms of the type of allegations made, what sort of doctors are involved, and how they are dealt with. Detailed suggestions are finally made for improving the system

Serious fraud in Australia and New Zealand by Russell G Smith( Book )

2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study - a joint project between the Australian Institute of Criminology and PricewaterhouseCoopers - provides an analysis of a sample of serious fraud prosecutions completed in 1998 and 1999 throughout Australia and New Zealand. The findings provide an indication of how serious fraud is committed, how much loss is suffered, the characteristics of offenders and victims, offender motivations, rationalisations and mitigating factors, and certain key indicators relating to the judicial processing of cases, including how cases were discovered, the length of investigations, and the sentences imposed on offenders. Finally, the study identifies certain key risk factors behind the commission of the crimes. The findings confirm that serious fraud in Australia and New Zealand is both prevalent and costly, while the application of criminal justice responses raises many challenging investigatory, legal and practical issues. Being better informed with respect to the nature and extent of the problem will help people involved in dealing with such cases to plan their responses and, hopefully, also help prevent those at risk of victimisation from falling prey to offenders

Future directions in technology-enabled crime : 2007-09 by Kim-Kwang Raymond Choo( Book )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The aim of this report was to identify the crime risks which will arise over the next two years (2007-09) out of the environment in which Australians use information and communications technologies. In identifying future risk areas, particular focus is placed on the impact these will have for law enforcement, the need for additional resources, law reform, development of cooperative arrangements between Australian and overseas public and private sector organisations, and development of public information and educational resources to minimise the risk of widespread harm to the community. The report begins by identifying developments that will take place over the next two years that will be likely to facilitate technology-enabled crime. These include: changes arising from globalisation of business and the emergence of new economies in China and India; developments in digitisation of information, especially relating to the widespread use of broadband services and mobile and wireless technologies; the evolution of electronic payment systems, especially those being used in connection with online gambling and auctions; and changes in the use governments make of technology to allow members of the public to conduct transactions with government agencies securely and even to aloe participation in democracy online. These, and other developments, create not only benefits for the community but also risks. This report identifies the most likely areas in which opportunities for illegality may arise including fraud, identity-related crime, computer vandalism, theft of information, dissemination of objectionable material online, and risks of organised crime and terrorism. The implications for these developments are then assessed in terms of their impact for policing, policy making and legislation
E-crime solutions and crime displacement by Russell G Smith( Book )

2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper considers the potential displacement effects that may arise from the introduction of crime prevention measures designed to reduce electronic crime and how best to guard against them. The paper discusses the possible application to electronic crime of the following kinds of displacement: spatial displacement; temporal displacement; target displacement; tactical displacement; offence displacement; and perpetrator displacement, and presents a table summarising the displacement possibilities of particular situational electronic crime prevention measures. The policy implications for responding to these potential displacement risks are also discussed
CRIME AND PUNISHMENT IN BRITAIN : the penal system in theory, law, and practice by Russell Smith( )

6 editions published between 2010 and 2017 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book, first published in 1965, describes the British penal system as it existed in the 1960s. It describes how the system defined, accounted for, and disposed of offenders. As an early work in criminology, it focuses on differences between, and changes in, the views held by legislators, lawyers, philosophers, and the man in the street on the topic of crime and punishment. Walker is interested in the extent to which their views reflect the facts established and the theories propounded by psychologists, anthropologists, and sociologists.The confusion between criminologists and penal reformers was initially encouraged by criminologists themselves, many of whom were penal reformers. Strictly speaking, penal reform, according to Walker, was a spare-time occupation for criminologists, just as canvassing for votes is an ancillary task for political scientists. The difference is that the criminologist's spare-time occupation is more likely to take a ""moral"" form, and when it does so it is more likely to interfere with what should be purely criminological thoughts.The machinery of justice involves the interaction of human beings in their roles of victim, offender, policeman, judge, supervisor, or custodian, and there must be a place for human sympathy in the understanding, and still more in the treatment, of individual offenders. This book is concerned with the efficiency of the system as a means to these ends. One of the main reasons why penal institutions have continued to develop more slowly than other social services is that they are a constant battlefield between emotions and prejudices. This is a great empirical study; against which the policy-maker and criminologist can measure progress or regression in British criminals and punishments."--Provided by publisher

Impediments to the successful investigation of transnational high tech crime by Russell G Smith( Book )

2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Technology has both facilitated and impeded the investigation of crime, particularly high tech crime involving computing and communications technologies. On the one hand, computers have enabled vast amounts of data to be searched and analysed quickly, and have permitted documents and files to be scanned and transmitted across the globe in seconds. On the other hand, the sheer quantity of information creates considerable problems for investigators who sometimes have to examine gigabytes of data and break encryption codes before the material they are interested in can be discovered. This paper identifies a number of barriers to the effective investigation of high tech crime across borders, and offers some solutions that could be used to streamline future investigations in cyberspace
Gambling as a motivation for the commission of financial crime by Yuka Sakurai( Book )

2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With increasing opportunities and venues for gambling in Australia, public concern about "problem gambling" has grown. This paper examines one of the social problems said to be associated with gambling: the commission of financial crime by individuals trying to obtain funds to gamble with. Recent data supporting the relationship between problem gambling and financial crime are presented, and the most effective judicial responses are assessed
