Investigators need to have an understanding of the kinds of crimes that can be committed using high tech devices, computers and the internet. Additionally, computers may hold evidence relevant to the proof of a great many offences, many of which are not cyber crimes, but where the computer has been used as the 'electronic filing cabinet'. Importantly, investigations involving cyber related crimes can be affected in many cases by jurisdictional issues. This includes availability of evidence, which can be affected by varying legislation and international treaties, or the lack of treaties. This subject will provide the student with a critical understanding of these current and evolving issues.
