Transnational Organized Crime Book Description:

"Transnational Organized Crime and Gangs provides several first person historical examples of the criminal gangster mind set and mentality present in today's transnational organized crime/gangs combined with a holistic approach towards prevention and intervention in the cybersecurity space. Credence will be given to the roll and importance of the gang members' spirituality and family, whether it is supportive of the gang culture or attempts to set an anti-gang environment. This will be augmented by three (or more) examples of how the increasing threats are coming from transnational organized crime groups (e.g., Russian mafia, Chinese Triads, MS 13, and cartels). These influential organizations have tremendous power and money, which means they have the ability to pay hackers to defeat cybersecurity measures. The dangers posed by organized crime groups are nothing new. For decades, these organizations have launched sophisticated attacks against individuals as well as major corporations. Billions of dollars have been stolen every year, and large, continuous hacks of our highly sensitive computer systems. What is new, is the acknowledgement that cybersecurity should be high priority for every individual, company, and government entity. While DHS's involvement in cybersecurity is a step in the right direction, more measures need to be put in place that facilitates collaboration across industries and government entities. For example, to measure the nation's cyber security efforts there needs to be a diverse membership comprised of federal and state regulators with responsibility for oversight of publicly/privately owned facilities, privately owned and operated suppliers, crisis-level and regional management authorities, and other parties. The membership should be familiar with the International Standards Organization (ISO) standards, and in every case, experienced with implementation and auditing organizations and facilities that have chosen to adopt voluntary, standards-based management systems. This membership should have interests conforming to the voluntary frameworks exemplified in the Plan-Do-Check-Act models common to quality, environmental, health, safety and security standards of the ISO"--
