- The Potential Impacts of Cybercrime
Pages 20

In this chapter, we will examine the possible consequences of electronic crime. Electronic crime is far-reaching. It can affect the personal records of the individual. It can impact the financial resources of a bank, causing confusion and, potentially, affecting customer accounts. Digital crime can result in confidential information being compromised, affecting the price of the victim’s publicly traded shares. It can be an attack on a corporation’s marketing information, causing misinformation to be communicated to the sales force. Or, it can bring down an Internet service provider with a denial of service attack.
