Misha Glenny: Cybercrime

Author; Journalist; Visiting Professor, London School of Economics

Governments and the private sector are losing billions of dollars a year fighting an ever-morphing, often invisible and very smart new breed of criminal. Intrepid investigative reporter Glenny gives an edge-of-your-seat account of a new form of crime spawned by the digital world. He has traveled the world speaking with members of military and intelligence communities, police, politicians, lawyers and with the hackers themselves and their victims. He advances often-surprising suggestions for the ways in which the authorities might begin to end the cybercrime epidemic.
