With society's increasing dependence on technology, we are becoming more
vulnerable to individuals who can exploit this technology. The rise of the
Internet is as much a societal revolution as it is a technical one (Rogers,

attention, time, and economic resources. This dependence, both societal and
technological, has not been lost on the criminal element of our society. In
the past few years, we have seen dramatic increases in criminal computer
behavior, and the accompanying monetary losses to businesses and private
citizens (Power, 2002). The RCMP has reported that computer crime is one of
the fastest growing criminal categories in Canada (RCMP, 2003).
