CRIM 416: International Perspectives on CyberCrime

From August 20 to August 31, 2017 (after the closing of the exam period), as part of the 3-credit course CRIM 416, approximately 15 students from SFU will travel to the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow, Scotland, to participate in a CyberCrime Field School called "International Perspectives on CyberCrime". By having participants from the local universities join the SFU students, and involving local experts (e.g., lectures by professors from the Department of Computer and Information Sciences and the Law School at University of Strathclyde, and talks delivered by representatives from Europol and the Police Scotland CyberCrime Hub), the course will expose students to the international challenges that are associated with interdicting this type of crime. The opportunity to visit local practitioners and/or law enforcement agencies specializing in this field will allow the students (and faculty) to develop new international contacts and a more internationalized view of this topic. The studied topics will include "how hackers are ignoring jurisdictional boundaries and collaborating internationally," and the "international challenges faced by law enforcement."

Field School Director: Dr. Richard Frank, Associate Director, International CyberCrime Research Centre

Application Deadline: February 13, 2017
