A Multidisciplinary Approach to Teaching a Course on Computer Crime

Ayn Embar-Seddon

A review of the literature suggests that in order to adequately address the computer crime problem, a multidisciplinary approach must be used. I would extend this to teaching about computer crime in the classroom setting. The best way for students to understand the problem of computer crime (and therefore be able to help combat the problem) is through the use of multidisciplinary approach, addressing the issue from a criminological/philosophical perspective, a criminal justice/law enforcement perspective, and a computer science perspective.
