Terrorism and crime committed with the use of information systems and tools signify an ominous threat to the increasingly information-based economies of the world’s leading countries. The United States, with its highly networked infrastructure, is perhaps both the most powerful and the most vulnerable. Law enforcers investigating different crimes continue to grapple with numerous obstacles. Modern technologies such as the Internet have led to new problems.
You have just been assigned as the Chief Information Officer (CIO) of the Department of Homeland Security. Your first assignment given to you by the Secretary of Homeland Security is to furnish that person with a briefing paper that discusses the new and emerging threats of cybercrime and terrorism and the major challenges facing law enforcement agencies whenever dealing with these crimes.
Your paper should include the following:
1. Definition of cyber terrorism
2. Definition of cyber crimes
3. New and emerging cyber terrorism threats
4. New and emerging cybercrime threats
5. Challenges facing law enforcement in investigating cyber terrorism and cybercrime
6. The forensic tools available to law enforcement in their fight against cyber terrorism and cybercrime
You should be using information discussed in the Weeks 1-3 readings, academic research from the Keiser databases and government websites, and other relevant (cited and referened in APA) examples.
