Building an Educational Website Dedicated to the Study of Violent Crime Perpetuated Through Social MediaMaloney, Kristen; Lizardi, Ryan; First Reader; Jofre, Ana; Second Reader (2019-04)Computing technology has taken over every aspect of life, from business to socializing, the world is entirely dependent on the Internet. Social engineering, hacking, and phishing attempts have made protecting private information and finances more complex than ever. As new techniques and equipment are created by the day, law enforcement struggles to keep pace. With the rise of social media, online gaming, and crowdfunding, there are more outlets than ever for criminals to attempt to defraud unsuspecting victims. This study serves to examine what makes cybercrime so attractive, the types of attacks and targets, and the role of law enforcement in investigating crimes; with on how social media networks like Facebook or Twitter have allowed crime to cross into real life. Utilizing this information, I have created an educational website for use in public or academic spaces to make cybersecurity information accessible. This flexible platform can be updated in real time as more information becomes available – allowing for new risk and solutions to be added.
