Hackers are out to get you . . . but these experts are on the job to stop them! Cybercrime is a growing problem, affecting businesses, governments, and individuals. A growing number of computer wizards are using science to prevent crime . . . or track down the cybercriminals. Visit this secret world inside! Every book in the SCIENTISTS IN ACTION! series takes you on a journey where science and adventure meet. Science is not just for the classroom or the lab--it's a living, breathing, exciting part of our world today. Throw off that lab coat and get out and do some science! Each title in this series contains color photos, insider quotes from real scientists in the field, recent news items highlighting the excitement of each field, and back matter including: an index, further reading lists for books and internet resources, and a series glossary. Mason Crest's editorial team has placed Key Icons to Look for throughout the books in this series in an effort to encourage library readers to build knowledge, gain awareness, explore possibilities and expand their viewpoints through our content rich non-fiction books. Key Icons are as follows: Words to Understand are shown at the front of each chapter with definitions. These words are then used in the prose throughout that chapter, and are emboldened, so that the reader is able to reference back to the definitions- building their vocabulary and enhancing their reading comprehension. Sidebars are highlighted graphics with content rich material within that allows readers to build knowledge and broaden their perspectives by weaving together additional information to provide realistic and holistic perspectives. Text Dependent Questions are placed at the end of each chapter. They challenge the reader's comprehension of the chapter they have just read, while sending the reader back to the text for more careful attention to the evidence presented there. Research Projects are provided at the end of each chapter as well and provide readers with suggestions for projects that encourage deeper research and analysis. A Series Glossary of Key Terms is included in the back matter contains terminology used throughout the series. Words found here broaden the reader's knowledge and understanding of terms used in this field.
