The Importance of Knowledge Exchange Between Academia and Tech Workers in Setting Up a Comprehensive Curriculum in Cybercrime

Thu, Nov 14, 2:00 to 3:20pm, Golden Gate Salon B, Area 5, B2 Level


Cybercrime rates continue to escalate, cybercriminals are increasingly utilizing advanced computer technology to attack individuals, organizations, and governments. Due to a lack of qualified cybercriminologists to counter the rapid rise in cybercrime, it is difficult to draw current patterns and predict upcoming trends. Chris Kayser has co-authored research papers in the field of cybercriminology, and he recently introduced a new theory (RESCAT) explaining the importance of social engineering as it relates to cybercrime, and continues to research many topics related to cybercriminology. The paper is up to identify the gap between the curricula for technicians and social sciences, and sheds light on the importance of blending knowledge.
