The Canadian Cyberfraud Handbook: A Professional Reference
Availability: In Stock

The Canadian Cyberfraud Handbook: A Professional Reference seeks to bring order to the chaos of understanding and classifying the major types of emerging deceptive practices. This publication introduces a practical model for unpacking and presenting cyberfraud information to educate professionals and empower business leaders in making effective risk-based decisions. Based on years of research into hundreds of real cases, this unique resource will assist the reader in immediately identifying different types of cyberfraud and adopting effective preventative strategies.


Primarily designed for business professionals, consultants and legal advisors, the Canadian Cyberfraud Handbook was written with financial cybercrime awareness in mind, specific to the emerging threats increasingly targeting Canadian citizens and organizations. This inaugural edition explores the evolution of cyberfraud from its earliest origins to the current trends of malware-powered automation, artificial intelligence and digitally enhanced deceptive practices.


Recent reports indicate that for the first time in history, the staggering growth of cyberfraud has outpaced increases in transaction volumes as it continues to sweep through the developed world with devastating consequences. Financially motivated cybercrime in North America is poised to scale over the next few years and Canadian organizations of all sizes will inevitably be impacted, changing the risk advisory landscape and impacting regulated and unregulated sectors alike.


The Canadian Cyberfraud Handbook takes the lead in defining the language and structure of cyberfraud, identifies and classifies global trends and offers applicable strategies that position cyberfraud prevention as a risk management initiative. This immersion into cyberfraud belongs on every professional's bookshelf alongside security program management and privacy compliance leadership materials.
