Computer-Cyber Crimes are categorized as follows:
(a) where a network or a computer is the target of the illegal activity; and
(b) where the alleged criminal activity is set in motion and facilitated by a computer.
Criminal activity is accomplished by means of a computer may include (a) simple fraud; (b) production of false identification; (c) reproduction and distribution of copyrighted material; (d) distribution, collection and production of child pornography; and (e) other types of crimes.
Because of the sophistication and quick development of technology, evidence of the criminal activity is handled in a different way than in the past. The FBI often requires computer forensic examination of electronic devices and computer generated data. Criminal activity where a networks or computers are targets usually lead to harm to the targeted network or computer. Moreover, the targeted networks can be used to initiate attacks on other networks. The FBI uses a number of federal statutes to investigate computer crimes. The FBI is sensitive to the victim’s concerns about public exposure, so any decision to investigate is jointly made between the FBI and the United States Attorney in order to take the victim’s needs into account.
