the Internet, wireless services of all kinds, artificial intelligence (AI), deep intelligence initiatives, and global positioning system (GPS) devices, have ushered in a wealth of new criminal opportunities; crimes that employ advanced or emerging technologies in their commission are referred to as techno-crimes” (p.603). Technology can calculate outcomes faster than the human mind at this time. Therefore, the need to stay one step ahead of cybercriminals requires direct attention and constant surveillance. To address crimes related to advancing technologies, current laws need reviewed and modified regularly to keep up with the evolution of the crimes and the criminals abilities to break through protectant firewalls. Additionally, it may not be a bad idea to increase protection and decrease crimes by making all devices traceable, all web IP addresses and VPN to be registered and avoid any private or unlicensed access. While this may infringe on the right to privacy of citizens, the overall protection and wellbeing of society should come before personal rights to privacy. By modifying existing laws and creating more harsh rules, this may decrease the criminal access to technology.

    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.
