Perceptions of risk in cyberspace

By Jonathan Jackson, Nick Allum and George Gaskell


Sociology, information and computer sciences, communications, and economics are among the perspectives of 15 papers commissioned by the British government's Foresight project on Cyber Trust and Crime prevention. The project was charged with exploring the application and implications of new generations of information and communication technologies in selected areas that are expected to present future opportunities and challenges for crime prevention. They consider possible drivers of the evolution of cyberspace, opportunities created by innovations in technology, threats and barriers to cyberspace development, and the feasibility of various crime prevention measures
