History of information technology and the criminal justice system | CRJ 621 Cybercrime Investigation | Ashford University

   History of Information Technology and the Criminal Justice System 

Prior to beginning work on this discussion, read Out of the Beta Phase: Obstacles, Challenges, and Promising Paths in the Study of Cyber Criminology and A Brief History of Cyber Crime online resources, and watch the videos, James Lyne: Everyday Cybercrime – and What You Can Do about It (Links to an external site.) and Protecting Consumers from Cybercrime (Links to an external site.).

The United States’ criminal justice system began with the creation of the U.S. Constitution. Well over 200 years ago, the founding fathers could not have anticipated the ways in which technology would change the way Americans live, interact, and conduct business. Your 400 word minimum initial post for this discussion should track how the criminal justice system has sought to deal with information technology and crime.

In your initial post, examine how historical criminal justice investigative methods may or may not be applicable to investigate cyber crime. Provide at least one example of a cyber crime that cannot be investigated by “traditional” investigation methods. (This may be a real-world case or hypothetical construct.)
