Course detail: Cyber Threat Landscape for Law Enforcement
Technological advancements over the last 25 years have dramatically altered the traditional crime landscape and have forced law enforcement agencies to adapt to the change. Law enforcement officers are now expected to protect their communities from local offenders committing "traditional" crimes, in addition to computer hackers 10,000 miles away. This new cyber threat is forcing law enforcement to identify its role in preventing cybercrime and how to investigate crimes that are committed using technology. Participants in this course will identify and discuss digital evidence awareness, emerging cybercrime trends and digital forensics.
Participants will be provided with the materials, theories, educational foundation, and a development plan which will allow them to better succeed in personal/professional endeavors. Students will be expected to engage in interactive discussions and practical exercises as a part of this course.
Participants will employ best practices as they investigate any crime from its beginning to its eventual disposition; either as an individual, or as part of an investigatory team.

Classify cyber crimes based on information presented and understand the effect technology has on the criminal justice landscape.
