Cyber security is an emerging area within the criminal justice field. Professionals who work in cyber security apply their knowledge and skills to help organizations identify and address the risks and damages associated with digital fraud and cyber crimes, including Internet crime, cyberstalking, electronic crime and identity theft.
In a global culture driven by electronic information, businesses and government agencies use technology to protect the integrity of their data and computer systems. A variety of positions that utilize cyber security skills are available in the private sector and in local, state and federal law enforcement.1
