cybercrime case study 1

During the semester, you will select one cybercrime case or event (does not have to be a court case) related to the class. You must use reputable sources. (Hint: BLOGS/WIKIS are NOT reputable sources. News articles from reputable media outlets and court documents are ok to use.) Do not choose a current event/case that have been discussed in class or covered in class material.

You will write a minimum of two pages, 1 page for each section. This DOES NOT include the heading! Anything less than one page of text, in each section, single spaced, will be graded accordingly. If your assignment is not formatted correctly, you will lose points!
