Aiken is popularly known as the inspiration for the TV crime drama CSI: Cyber.

Aiken really hits her stride in three central chapters covering the impact of digital technology on children and young people. Here she makes a powerful case for the view that our society has been criminally negligent in the way it puts children in the harm's way of digital technology * GUARDIAN *
It is of some comfort to me to know that I am not alone in my Cassandra-like warnings about the outlaw Internet. "We cannot stand by passively and watch the cyber experiment play out," Aiken warns. "In human terms, to wait is to allow for the worst outcomes." I could not have said it better. * HUFFINGTON POST *
Having worked with law enforcement groups from Interpol and Europol as well as the U.S. government, Aiken knows firsthand how today's digital tools can be exploited by criminals lurking in the Internet's Dark Net * NEWSWEEK *
