Institute For Cybersecurity
Cybercrime now permeates all criminal activity, whether the actor is a few miles or thousands of miles away. Victims are not only attacked from those who are outside of our nation’s borders, but also from within prison walls. With little to no computer knowledge, inmates are now continuing their criminal activity.
Law enforcement, as an ever constant evolving profession, must address the new way crimes are being committed by actors around the world, while maintaining the trust and confidence of those whom they are sworn to protect. In response, the National Sheriffs’ Association Global Center for Public Safety has created the Institute for Cybersecurity.
