Defense Of State And Federal Computer And Internet Crimes
Our world today revolves around computers and the internet in more ways than we can count. We use them for commerce, enrolling in higher education, completing homework assignments and work activities, interacting with friends and family, searching for vacation spots and parking spots, and much, much more. It is not surprising, then, that crime happens often in cyberspace.
You may believe you are carrying out duties for your job, only to be accused of wrongdoing. For example, you may be charged with a crime at the state level in Texas simply by accessing someone else’s computer without their consent. Accessing someone else’s accounts through identity theft may be a federal crime.
