CRIM 380: Introduction to CyberCrime

This course explores how an interconnected world has bred new crimes and new responses to those crimes. Students will explore the history, nature and extent of computer-related crime as well as different types of computer criminals, their motivation and their methods of attack. We will also evaluate legal and regulatory environments in cyberspace, including internet surveillance, online sting operations, current and proposed legislation, user-reporting initiatives, filtering and blocking technologies, vigilante movements and international cooperation.
