College Park Section of CCJS 418B Added for Spring 2018

CCJS has added a College Park section of CCJS 418B Seminar in Criminology and Criminal Justice: Cyber Investigations for the Spring 2018 semester.  
Image result for cyber crime
Section: 0101
Prerequisites: CCJS 100 and CCJS 105
Day/Time:  Mondays 4:00 PM - 6:30 PM
Credits: 3

Cybercrime research has grown in visibility and importance during the last two decades. Nevertheless, despite the growing public interest in cybercrime and its consequences for businesses and individuals, only scant attention has been given in the criminological discipline to investigation and understanding of this new type of crime. The purpose of this course is to introduce students with the technical, social and legal aspects of cybercrime as well as expose students to theories and tools that enable scientific exploration of this phenomenon. 

In the first few weeks of the semester we will learn about the computer and the internet, and discuss several definitions and typologies of cybercrime. Then we will discuss the hacker, the victim and the IT manger, review various theories of crime causation, and assess the relevance of these theories in the context of cyber space. We will then describe several technical tools that allow the collection of data from the Internet. We will conclude with a discussion on the legal issues affected and created by online crime.
