This source was incredibly helpful because it provided me with my case study.

Vorgan, Gigi and Gary Small. “Is the Internet Killing Empathy?” CNN. Cable News Network, 18 Feb. 2011. Web. 13 Jan. 2014.

“A Look at Russian Hacking.” ABC News. ABC News Network, n.d. Web. 24 Jan. 2014. <http://abcnews.go.com/Technology/story?id=119291&page=2>.

This article focused specifically on the Russian side of hacking and computer crimes. It outlined the W’s: who what where when and why. it the article i used to create most of my ideas when writing the case studies and speaking about the specific groups involved.

“Computer Crime.” Wikipedia. Wikimedia Foundation, 21 Jan. 2014. Web. 23 Jan. 2014. <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Computer_crime>.

You know, wikipedia isn’t the trustiest source but I did read it in the beginning of this project to get the gist of my topic. It helped me get my mind flowing and i was able to expand on the aspect I thought were interesting, so i felt it was worth mentioning.

“Cyber Crime Statistics and Trends [Infographic].” Web Design Dubai Dubai Web Design and Web Application Development Company. N.p., n.d. Web. 24 Jan. 2014.                                            <http://www.go-gulf.com/blog/cyber-crime/>.

This infographic really did it for me. quite frankly it explains the whole problem but i couldn’t get the formatting right so I included the facts but was unable to include the actual image itself.

FBI. FBI, 17 Mar. 2010. Web. 24 Jan. 2014.                                                                                                                <http://www.fbi.gov/about-us/investigate/cyber>.

Information straight from the source. Biased, but in the exact way you”d expect it to be. it was good to have first hand resources to really understand what people are doing to fight cyber crime.

“FBI Warning: Cyber Threat Bigger than Ever.” DarkGovernment. N.p., n.d. Web. 24 Jan. 2014. <http://www.darkgovernment.com/news/fbi-warning-cyber-threat-bigger-than-ever/>.

Just a second article about the five hackers i used to cross check my info.

“How Much Have Foreign Hackers Stolen?” Bits How Much Have Foreign Hackers Stolen Comments. N.p., n.d. Web. 24 Jan. 2014.                                                                                                                                     <http://bits.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/02/14/how-much-have-foreign-hackers-stolen/?_php=true&_type=blogs&_r=0>.

A great article outlining the foreign hackers and cyber criminals. It was hard to identify much bias in this article and thats what made it super useful. The straight to the point demeanor were great.

Jones, David, and Jim Finkle. “U.S. Indicts Hackers in Biggest Cyber Fraud Case in History.” Reuters. Thomson Reuters, 25 July 2013. Web. 24 Jan. 2014.                 <http://www.reuters.com/article/2013/07/25/us-usa-hackers-creditcards-idUSBRE96O0RI20130725>

This source was an article about the five men that stole $300 million dollars worth of credit card data from various companies. Its a fairly reliable source website because it caters to professionals and business men but this also creates a bias against the hackers because most of their wealth readers are against hackers. This source helped me get some real world context on cyber crime and understand the part it plays in our society.

“SHEEPSHEAD BAY’S ONLY INDEPENDENT NEWS BLOG.” Sheepshead Bites RSS. N.p., n.d. Web. 24 Jan. 2014. <http://www.sheepsheadbites.com/2013/04/russians-face-a-hard-road-to-immigrate-to-america/>.

UNITED NATIONS. “Comprehensive Study on Cybercrime.” UNODC. N.p., Feb. 2013. Web. <http://www.unodc.org/documents/organized-crime/UNODC_CCPCJ_EG.4_2013/CYBERCRIME_STUDY_210213.pdf>.

This was a super complex 200 page study about cyber crime around the world. I didn’t read too much of it because this project really isn’t that serious but what I did get from it was a ton of great graphs and visual data representations that I used through out our whole project.
