Context: There are four main categories of computer crime:
- Computer as the target of criminals,
- criminals using computers to commit crimes,
- computers being incidental to a crime, and
- crime being facilitated due to the vast numbers of computers and digital devices in use today.
It is important to distinguish between these categories of computer crime in order to realize the different ways that digital devices can be involved in criminal activity.
Task Description: Search the Internet or the library and find a real-world example of each of the four types of computer crime. Write a 5 page (1800 words) paper using APA Style. Discuss the specific crime that you found in each category, its effects on the target, and the social and economic cost of recovering from the crime.
