Now in its tenth year, the Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3) has become a vital resource
for victims of online crime and for law enforcement investigating and prosecuting offenders.
In 2010, IC3 received the second-highest number of complaints since its inception. IC3 also
reached a major milestone this year when it received its two-millionth complaint. On average,
IC3 receives and processes 25,000 complaints per month.
IC3 is more than a repository for victim complaints.
This manual is an effort to assist law enforcement agencies and other
computer crime investigators by providing a resource guide compiled
from the vast pool of information on the Internet. This manual is not
intended to replace any formal training or education. This manual should
be used as a supplemental guide to reference too. It was not my
intention to compile this manual to provide a specific solution for
investigators. This was intended to provide a general overview, which
would assist in helping to developing a solution. This solution does not
have to be hardware or software based.
The risk of computer crime has become a global issue affecting almost all countries. Salifu (2008) argues that the Internet is a "double-edged sword" providing many opportunities for individuals and organizations to develop and prosper, but at the same time has brought with it new opportunities to commit crime. For example, Nigeria-related financial crime is extensive and 122 out of 138 countries at an Interpol meeting complained about Nigerian involvement in financial fraud in their countries.
Experts were located in two ways. First, nearly a thousand were identified in an extensive canvassing of
scholarly, government, and business documents from the period 1990-1995 to see who had ventured
predictions about the future impact of the Internet. Several hundred of them participated in the first two
surveys conducted by Pew Internet and Elon University, and they were recontacted for this survey.
The mission of the National White Collar Crime Center (NW3C) is to provide training, investigative support and research to agencies and entities involved in the prevention, investigation and prosecution of economic and high-tech crime. While NW3C has no investigative authority itself, its job is to help law enforcement agencies better understand and utilize tools to combat economic and high-tech crime. NW3C has other sections within its organization, including Training (in Computer Crime, Financial Crime and Intelligence Analysis), Research and Investigative Support Services.

It is a crime if someone physically hurts or threatens you. No one
has the right to hurt you, even if that person is a spouse, child,
boyfriend or girlfriend, parent or partner.This report describes work that I did on embedded control data communication using the domestic powerline circuitry as channel medium. A home automation system was implemented. In the modern home filled with electronic apparatus and appliances,.
Hacking, cracking, and cyber crimes are hot topics these days and will continue to be for the foreseeable future. However, there are steps you can take to reduce your organization's threat level. The first step is to understand what risks, threats, and vulnerabilities currently exist in your environment. The second step is to learn as much
as possible about the problems so you can formulate a solid response. The third step is to intelligently deploy your selected countermeasures and safeguards to erect protections around your most mission-critical assets.
In the past 30 years, there has been phenomenal growth in the area of data
communications, to say the least. During the Vietnam War, one of my duty
stations was on an island in the China Sea. I was part of a Signal Intelligence
group, intercepting and decoding wartime communications traffic. We did our
best to decode and analyze the information we intercepted, but there were
many times when the help of a high-end (at that time) mainframe computer
system was required.

The Gale Encyclopedia of Everyday Law is a twovolume
encyclopedia of practical information on
laws and issues affecting people’s everyday lives.
Readers will turn to this work for help in answering
questions such as, “What is involved in estate
planning?” “Do I have any recourse to noisy neighbors?”
and “What are the consequences of an
expired visa?” This Encyclopedia aims to educate
people about their rights under the law, although it
is not intended as a self-help or ‘do-it-yourself’
The use of the Internet for terrorist purposes is a rapidly growing phenomenon, requiring
a proactive and coordinated response from Member States.
The United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) plays a key role in providing
assistance to Member States, in furtherance of its mandate to strengthen the capacity
of national criminal justice systems to implement the provisions of the international
legal instruments against terrorism, and does so in compliance with the principles
rule of law and international human rights standards.
All Americans have a stake in effective response to hate
crimes. These crimes demand priority attention because
of their special impact. Bias crimes are designed to
intimidate the victim and members of the victim’s
community, leaving them feeling isolated, vulnerable,
and unprotected by the law. Failure to address this
unique type of crime could cause an isolated incident to
explode into widespread community tension. The
damage done by hate crimes, therefore, cannot be
measured solely in terms of physical injury or dollars and
The EU is considering a proposal to introduce filters for blocking of
child abuse websites. European Digital Rights urges the Parliament
and Council to rethink these plans. Child abuse and its portrayal on
the Internet is a terrible crime that is sometimes of a severity that is
scarcely believable. It must be treated seriously, with policies based
on evidence and effectiveness and not on politics or gut reactions.
We must avoid policies which give Member States the opportunity to
adopt cosmetic measures that we have already seen being used as a
replacement for real action.
Complacency, or the belief that "good-enough security" is all that is required, seems
to be the mind-set of many. Consequently, IT professionals may have settled for
security that isn't always effective. In the 2008 CSI Computer Crime & Security
Survey, 50% of the survey respondents reported that they suffered virus-based
security incidents. The survey results also show that one in five suffered a bot attack
in 2008. Virus security incidents have been the number 1 attack item for four of the
past five years, placing second in the other year.
The ADL stands as the leading source of current information on hate incidents
and on recommending effective counteractive responses. The League’s model
hate crimes statute has been enacted in 44 States and the District of Columbia, and
ADL conducts hate crime seminars at local law enforcement training academies
in a number of States. On the national level, ADL provides hate crimes seminars
to law enforcement authorities, educators, attorneys, and community groups on
effective strategies to identify, report, and respond to hate violence....
Terrorism Act of 2001, Internet gambling was addressed at the
Committee’s October 3, 2001 hearing on terrorism and money laundering.
At that hearing, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI),
the Department of Justice, and a money laundering expert testified
that Internet gambling serves as a vehicle for money laundering
and can be exploited by terrorists for that purpose. The FBI also
testified about pending litigation linking organized crime to money
laundering and Internet gambling.

Recent interest in security was fueled by the crime
committed by Kevin Mitnick. Kevin Mitnick
committed the largest computer‐related crime in
U.S. history . The losses were eighty million
dollars in U.S. intellectual property and source code
from a variety of companies . Since then,
information security came into the spotlight.
Public networks are being relied upon to deliver
financial and personal information.
