Dealing with Cybercrimes

Learning Goal: I’m working on a criminal justice discussion question and need support to help me learn.

This is a class discussion…. You must respond to the following bullets…. and I will be attaching 2 different student posts.. you must reply whether you agree or disagree and provide facts to your answer…Each student response must have 50 words for each post.

Respond to the following in a minimum of 175 words:

  • What is the greatest cybercrime threat in the U.S. today? How can it be prevented?
  • Do you agree or disagree with the penalties in your state for cybercrimes? Do you agree or disagree with the federal penalties for cybercrimes? What punishment do cyber criminals deserve? Explain your answers.
  • How can we protect ourselves against cybercrimes?

1)There are so many different types of cybercrime going on in todays society in America. From cyberbullying, to fraud and etc. From my opinion, I would say that cyber hacking and phishing are probably the greatest cybercrime threats that are out today, especially from foreigners hacking us. Matter of fact, just about a month ago, our payroll system was hacked throughout the entire country. This caused so much chaos during and after the system came back up which took nearly 2 months. People getting overpaid and some getting underpaid by 100s of dollar due to the fact that our checks were being duplicated from previous checks with no overtime or anything. Same with phishing through emails. Ways to prevent this is to be aware and alert of things that may look like a scam before opening emails if its not from direct sources. As for hacking, you can make stronger passwords and security answers. Yes I agree to both state and federal penalties in my state which is imprisonment for up to 3 years if found guilty and up to 5 for third-degree felony and even worst up to 20 years for cyber attacking. Ways we can protect ourselves are computer updates, managing social settings, and avoiding pop-ups.

2)I feel like the biggest cybercrime out right now is all the credit card fraud and scamming people out of their hard-earned money. I feel like every single person I know has had this happen to them at least once, and the only thing we are doing wrong is using a gas pump someone inserted, standing to close to someone with an electronic card reader, or simply trusting that someone is who they say they are. I have a chick fil a app that has my PayPal payment stored on it, and someone bought over$200 in gift cards from there with my account during Christmas. We love the convenience of the apps, but hate it when they are hacked, and our information is stolen. The only thing we can do to prevent this is just make harder passwords for all of our accounts, and change them often, as if it’s not hard enough remembering all of our passwords for everything we do online. I believe in punishment for cybercrime and think they should have to pay back everything they have stolen and more just for being inconsiderate, and placing unnecessary stress on people, especially the elderly who are living on very fixed incomes.
