CRIM 480: Computer Forenics and CyberCrime

Just as businesses and the general public have embraced computers and the Internet, so have criminals. Although cyber-crime can be defined as any crime which involves computers, this course will focus on those crimes where the computer is an integral part of the crime. Each week a specialized cyber-crime issue will be covered by first exploring an overview of the issue, how criminals take advantage of technology to commit their crimes, how the good guys can protect themselves and their stakeholders, and finally what can be done to collect evidence about the activities of the offenders once the crime does happen.
