APT1, Sandworm, revenge porn, or that Netflix subscription that you are being charged for but did not set up. These are all examples of different forms of cybercrime, a multi-faceted subject that is increasing in both frequency and levels of harm as our society becomes ever-more digital.
This module will introduce you to both key substantive areas, such as the nature of malware, online sex crimes, and cyber-terrorism, as well as introducing you to some of the basic key skills and techniques that are utilised by law enforcement, governments, and the private sector to detect and investigate malicious online behaviours.
