Cyber Crime

A New Kind of Fraud


Our next complex problem area, cyber crime, is different from the drugs challenge and requires different methodological approaches. The competencies and skills required to tackle drugs are not far removed from those of a doctor. They require a holistic approach in which the total situation is understood and a strategy for cure or improvement is developed. There are many subproblems that have to be recognized, understood, and managed with each likely to affect the others. Also, a number of groups have to cooperate and coordinate their activities if progress toward a solution is to be made.
