Cybercrime

This course will explore the legal, regulatory, and policy issues of cybercrime. The course will define cybercrime, teach students about types of cybercrime, and inform them on the methods of cyber criminals. The course distinguishes itself from the introductory law and policy of cybersecurity course in that it will not only offer an analysis of the legal, regulatory, and policy issues with which students may be confronted in their places of work, but also offer them practical solutions to preventing and responding to cybercrime. Students will learn about resources and best practices that they can easily apply to the context of their own jobs and other practical, real-life situations.

Students may register to take the course for two credits with a final exam, or they may register to take the course for three credits with a final paper.
