Technological advances change how we live, work, and relate to one another. Remote presence and the interconnectivity of people, devices, and organizations open a whole new playing field of vulnerabilities and access points that cybercriminals can exploit. Cyber threats have evolved from unsophisticated attackers to state-sponsored criminals. Fast-evolving and multi-dimensional threats exist across all industries and organized crime is becoming increasingly sophisticated in its use of technology to commit fraud. As a result, security incidents continue to rise and will continue to be a top-of-mind item for individuals, businesses, governments, and industry regulators as the number of high-profile attacks increases. Staying aware of cyber security trends is critical to crime prevention efforts and it also helps in the creation of tools and strategies to combat cyberattacks.

This course explains how the evolution of technology has transformed society and changed the face of computer and Internet fraud. It identifies common cyberattacks, cybersecurity threats, and vulnerabilities, and ways to protect ourselves from cybercrime. The course also discusses major cybersecurity and privacy laws, significant computer crime statutes, and widely recognized cybersecurity standards. Finally, it explains how the Red Flags Rule affects certain organizations and discusses cybersecurity risks and incidents disclosure requirements for public companies. Real-life cases are included as well.
