What Is Cyber Crime and How Can An Investigator Help?
Crime committed through computers or the internet, also known as “cyber crime,” is more prevalent today than ever before. As our lives become more wireless and everything takes to the cloud, computers have become a criminal’s most powerful tool. Many of us have heard the words virus, spyware, malware, and hacking; but what does it really mean in our everyday life? Consider how much private information you submit, view, or save on your computer on a montly basis. Criminals can use hacks and codes to break into laptops, personal computers, corporate servers, and wireless devices. Hackers can steal anything from intellectual property from corporations to your personal information right off your computer at home (even if you think you have deleted it).
Some preventative measures a computer forensics investigator can start with are assess the computer’s risk, develop a strong security policy, security measures training, technology implementation, and information tecnology infrastructure reconfiguration. If you believe your computer has already been comprimised, investigators can perform vulnerability assesments and penetration testing to determine the root of the problem. These tests allow investigators to detect and fix any weaknesses in your computer system. Investigators can also suggest countermeasures you can take to protect your system in the future.
