5/28/2017 Cyber Crimes and Criminals ­ Catching Cyber Criminals ­ The Carnegie Cyber Academy ­ An Online Safety site and Games for Kids 1/3 Because cyber criminals can launch coordinated attacks from all over the globe, catching them often requires the collaboration of many people, and this becomes more difficult as cyber crime continues to grow. Cyber Defenders have to constantly develop new tools, new technologies, new procedures and even new fields of study just to keep up with cyber criminals. Governments and law enforcement agencies have created teams of people dedicated just to tracking down cyber criminals . In the United States, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has a special Cyber Investigations department , and they helped create the Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3). The IC3 provides the public with an easy­to­use reporting system that alerts the authorities of suspected criminal violations. Many police departments are training Internet or Computer Crime units that people can contact for information and assistance. These units support the law enforcement in investigating cyber crimes and tracking down cyber criminals. You can check with your local police department to see what kind of resources they have available. Since cyber crime is relatively new, there aren't a lot of experts available to train cyber defenders. Many colleges now offer degrees in fields like cyber crime and cyber forensics just to create these experts.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
