Cyber-Crime Control, Prevention and Investigation: PROPOSAL
INTRODUCTION: Cybercrime is a crime involving computers or digital devices, in which a computer can be either a target of the crime, a tool of the crime or contain evidence of the crime. Since most information processing these days depends on the use of information technology, the control, prevention andinvestigation of cyber activities is paramount to the success of the Organizations,
Government’s agencies and individuals. The procurement and retention of highly skill cybercrime expert byGovernment and Business Enterprises cannot be overemphasized. This will ensure compliancewith international acceptable standard of usage of computer and other technological devices inthe work places.Although prevention as they say is better than cure, irrespective of the deterrent measures to prevent and or control cybercrime, there may still be breaches, where this occur, ForensicsExperts will be called in to conduct a sound digital forensic investigations, analysis,documentation and reconstruction of the crime scene and present the evidence of the findings to the appropriate authorities or the Jury as the case may be, that can lead to arrest, prosecution andconviction of the culprit. Digital Asset need to be protected to guaranteed it Confidentiality, Integrity and Availability(CIA triad). Information stored in Human brain, electronic devices physical media and those ontransit needs to be protected. Hence the urge for this research topic.This research will therefore be broken down into three major categories namely: Cyber-Crime Control (CCC), Cyber-Crime Prevention (CCP), Cyber-Crime Investigation (CCI).
