Cybercrime Investigation Methods

Prior to beginning work on this assignment read the Sinduh and Meshram (2012) article (Links to an external site.). It is also recommended you review the Brown (2015) article (Links to an external site.) before writing your assignment. Review the instructions below and research a minimum of two additional scholarly or professional sources to support your statements. (Access the MSCJ Professional Sources guide (Links to an external site.) for assistance with finding appropriate professional resources.)

As you have learned thus far, cyber crimes being committed create a new vanguard for law enforcement and prosecution of criminal actions. The commonplace notions of physical crime scenes, standard and material evidence collection, and well-established, traditional steps of an investigation do not necessarily apply in the “cyber world.” With a need for change in how cyber crimes are investigated, you will examine current cyber crime investigations methods in this assignment.

For this assignment you will prepare a three to five page (750 to 1250 words) paper detailing the major components of cybercrime investigation. Including the following elements in your narrative:

  • Develop your own, working definition of cyber crime.
  • Explain the methodology of gathering evidence in a cyber crime investigation.
  • Analyze the methods of evidence collection, analysis and preservation.
  • Explain the legal challenges for both private security and police agencies related to cyber crime investigation methods and practices.

The Cybercrime Investigation Methods paper

  • Must be three to five double-spaced pages (750 to 1250 words) in length (not including title and references pages) and formatted according to APA style as outlined in the UAGC Writing Center (Links to an external site.).
  • Must include a separate title page with the following:
    • Title of paper
    • Student’s name
    • Course name and number
    • Instructor’s name
    • Date submitted
  • Must use at least two scholarly sources in addition to the required course materials.
