You can disable Ctrl+C and Ctrl+X by implementing your own handler. See http://java.sun.com/developer/technicalArticles/releases/data/   for more information.

Disabling Ctrl+prt sc and Alt+prt sc would require you to write native code using JNI, if at all possible.

Control + c or
Control +PrtScrn or
Alt+PrtScrn.

This can prevent Ctrl+C and Ctrl+X. However, it's not editable table.
If you want user can select a part of text in a cell, you should write your own TableCellEditor.

import java.awt.*;
import javax.swing.*;
import javax.swing.table.*;

public class TableNoCopy extends JFrame {
    JTable table;

    public TableNoCopy() {
        super("Customer Information");
        setDefaultCloseOperation(EXIT_ON_CLOSE);
        setSize(400,400);
        setLocationRelativeTo(null);

        Object cnames[] = {"Data"};
        Object data[][] = {{"a@host"},
                         {"b@host"},
                         {"c@host"}};
        table = new JTable(new DefaultTableModel(data,cnames)){
            public TransferHandler getTransferHandler() {
                // overide getTransferHandler in class JComponent
                return null;
            }
            public boolean isCellEditable(int row,int col) {
                // no such editable cell
                return false;
            }
        };

        getContentPane().setLayout(new BorderLayout());
        getContentPane().add(new JScrollPane(table));
    }

    public static void main(String[] args) {
        new TableNoCopy().setVisible(true);
    }
}
