The Future of Digital Crimes and Digital Terrorism 2 People have been committing crimes for centuries. With the creations of new technology to assist changes in society, it opened the world up to a new type of crime. Cybercrimes are crimes that are done without face to face interactions but are done within the comforts of the attacker’s homes or businesses using the internet.

    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.
