Falling prices and rapidly increasing technology have made day-to-day use of the computer commonplace in today's business world. The invaluable services of the computer are readily available to everyone from corner grocery stores to international corporations.

Computer crime is a major problem all computer users must protect against if reliance on the computer is to continue. To understand the importance of protection, one must understand what computer crime is, the types of crime occurring, why it continues, and what can be done to stop it.
