Course Description

US Flag Foundations of Cyber Crimes highlights a range of cyber crimes and the appropriate response by first responders and other local, state, and federal agencies that may encounter them. Participants will identify legislative, organizational, and suggested personal efforts to control or prevent cyber crimes. This course examines cyber and cyber facilitated non-violent white-collar crimes, fraud and financial crimes, and violent crimes. The broad landscape of the cyber crimes discussed in this course illustrates the fact that almost all crimes can either be directly committed or indirectly facilitated through the cyber domain-a result of society’s increasing integration and dependence on the Internet and computers into nearly every aspect of daily life.
