Cybercrime describes the major types of crimes involving computers and the internet that are of two types: (1) traditional crimes committed using computers and/or the internet; and (2) new crimes created because of the internet. This course will cover crimes in both areas, including the major federal laws that control cybercrime and criminal procedure and how it applies in a cybercrime context. Cybercrimes involving hacking, cyberbullying, bitcoin and the internet of things and law will be included in this course.
In this course, for each of the twelve legal topics and segments, there is a reading assignment, a video lecture followed by a five-question quiz to test your knowledge and comprehension. You will be able to re-watch any video lecture, and retake the quizzes as you would like.
You may never look at your computer the same again.
