Cyber crimes involve the use of internet connectivity in the course of committing a crime. This is a very broad topic. The continued expansion of the internet means that more and more types of crime will spawn new cyber versions.
For this assignment, choose one type of cyber crime that victimizes individuals, and one that targets businesses. Prepare a 3-5 page report in Microsoft Word that addresses the following points for each of these two categories:
- Describe how offenders use the internet to carry out this type of crime.
- Discuss the extent of this crime – for example, are there estimates regarding how many victims are harmed each year?
- Provide a real-world example of this type of crime. Describe how it was carried out and how law enforcement responded.
