This chapter describes the definitions and scope of cybercrime including an outline of the history of hackers and the role of criminal networks and markets in the dissemination of malicious software. Cybercrime types and methods are described, including the widespread use of deception in computer misuse and identity theft. The challenges facing law enforcement and the important role of private and public partnerships, as well as cross-national co-operation in the suppression of cybercrime are illustrated.
