Lat December 16,2016 So will all crimes become cyber crimes as computers take over everything? Or at least require a computer forensics investigators because some sort of computer/phone/wearable that can be investigated to solve the crimes? This video shows computer forensics is a very busy and diverse field to enter into.
pneyzariat January 30,2017 It's amazing what's out there in terms of technology, and it's amazing that there are individuals willing to hack and exploit personal information. Furthermore, the fact that the dark web provides grounds for purchasing (and evidently, they are not that pricey at all according to some articles I read online) malware and other tools cybercriminals can use to commit the crimes they desire is something I doubt many are aware of. It's something that passes by in the shadows -- an underground, if you will -- while we often blindly continue on with our day to day activities. I read another student's comment earlier regarding how we may want to slow down on the progression of the IOT so that we don't (perhaps accidentally) provide an easier grounds to these criminals, but I think it's inevitable that as long as technology progresses and we utilize it in our day to day activities, so will the criminals trying to utilize it for their unjust purposes.
msharma6at January 30,2017 Looking at this video, I realize that all the cyber crime analysts have to keep up with the latest technologies because with what they are offering these days, it is getting easier and easier for the hackers to use these tools to accomplish their mission. Everything around is related to some sort of technology, we have it with us such as phone, smart watches, laptops etc. A lot of people depend of these gadgets for their day to day life which makes them much more vulnerable to these attacks.
thornerat February 03,2017 This video stated what has become an unavoidable truth. As technology grows more sophisticated, so will the
attacks and cybercrime associated with the technological advancements. The internet of things becomes more
and more prevalent every day, and I fully believe that computer related crimes and cyberterrorism are towards
the top of the priority list for any intelligence agency - if not the number 1 spot. That's one of the
reasons I'm excited to learn more about the computer forensics field. These crimes will only grow more common,
widespread, and refined, and they are not going away any time soon. Forensic investigators are going to be
invaluable to many different corporations, intelligence communities, and law enforcement agencies.
student0at February 20,2017 The clip didn't go into much detail about how the drone was able to pick up usernames and passwords from three different mobile device users. I am curious to know if what was accomplished by the drone could as easily been accomplished with hidden devices in a person's backpack who was walking around where these users were operating. In any case, it does appear that all people- civilians and government employees- will need to become better at identifying and combatting cyber criminals.
