danielm8at April 09,2016 Anything that is electronic can be hacked. There will always be people with the time and the skills to hack the latest technology. Hackers can change and make things easier for the user or hack for the purpose of evil and collect personal data. There will be whitehat hackers to fill in the vulnerabilities, but the easiest cyber crime is social engineering, which is also the easiest to prevent, which is to be aware of what you are downloading.
fpazdzinat April 17,2016 Everything that has some kind of wireless connection has the potential to be hacked. And using drones is a very innovative way for cybercriminals to perform these hacks. It’s good that the more tech savvy generation is starting to filter in to law enforcement. We need as many people as possible who easily understand current technologies to be trying to prevent these cybercrimes.

nickat May 01,2016 Lillian Ablon, the Rand Corp consultant, comments that law enforcement is getting better. I believe that opinion remains to be seen. I suppose, when compared to no capability, yes there has been improvement in law enforcements cyber capabilities. While there are certainly capable units within parts of federal, state and local agencies, it doesn't appear that they have made much of a dent in ongoing malicious cyber activity when one reviews the trends in network, mobile and other attacks. Law enforcement's cyber efforts are underfunded, short staffed, and slowed down by bureaucracy. Additionally, the subjects of this video; drones, cyber crime markets and hacks on the human body are likely, to some respects, outside the scope of current law. Consider the growing threats to automobiles, with their numerous computer systems and networks. Laws have not been created yet that cover the threats against the automobile industry. The internet of things is so vast, providing so many attack vectors, which will likely cause law enforcement to continue to engage in whack a mole with cyber threat actors.
rburkettat May 02,2016 I think it is changing slowly but I am surprised at hoe many police departments lack skilled cybersecurity officers. We call on the police when our physical space is unlawfully breached. Who can we call when our cyber space is unlawfully breached? Maybe there should be such a thing as a cyber officer and cyber patrols? Of course, that assumes that you trust the police. If not, I guess there's always Geek Squad.
