Cyber Crime on the Orient Express: This Time There’s Wi-Fi!
It’s always the morning somewhere on the internet, this year’s Malahide Murder Morning has three themes and one of them is the impact of digital crimes and Cyber crime on the world we live in.
The first computer was built around a ‘hack’. Alan Turing wanted to listen in on the German radio messages and aid the allied forces in shortening World War Two; the first ‘hack’ was born.
Crime and the digital fabric of the world now go hand in hand. Innovation and the arrival of digital has changed the way we think about everything. Digital moves at a pace that is so hard to keep up with, a constant need to flux and change.
Whether it’s murder, blackmail, embezzlement or a sheer mischievous nature, digital can make the role of the criminal so much easier.
But, it makes the role of the detective easier too. The digital advantage in the criminal world becomes more and more about the speed of change and acceptance of digital; think Watson and Holmes with Facebook as an ally or Miss Marple using google to find a crucial piece of information.
This Murder Morning session with Richard Corbridge, Chief Information Officer of the HSE – and long suffering Barnsley fan – will explore the various concepts of Cyber crime and how they can be used to ill effect and combated for good.
