section heading icon      overview

What are digital certificates? Are businesses on the web what they claim to be? Are hackers a danger to your organisation? What can you do to stop them? Where can you find information about disaster planning? What's digital watermarking? Can geolocation technologies put the borders back into the 'borderless' internet and thereby underpin national legislation about online hate speech or e-commerce? Are statistics about the net as a haunt of child molesters credible?

This guide offers insights about those questions. The separate Governance guide looks at broader issues about regulating cyberspace. Identity
(including online and offline identity crime) is discussed separately. A note discusses the private security industry.

The guide is supplemented by several profiles.

The Surveillance profile highlights writing about the 'surveillance state' (whether involving government agencies or the media), identity schemes such as passports and national identification cards, biometrics and other authentication technologies, conspiracy theories and fiction about pervasive surveillance in the digital environment.

There are separate profiles regarding Forgery & Fakes, and
regulation of Spam in Australia and elsewhere.

There is also a more detailed discussion of Australian and overseas cryptography regulation, including the OECD Cryptography Guidelines and Wassenaar Arrangement.
