The Canadian Cyberfraud Handbook: A Professional Reference


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

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.
