INVS 6629 - Evolving Trends of Financial and Cyber Crimes in an EMV World

This course is a detailed examination of the current state of financial and cyber-enabled crimes in the United States. This will include traditional crimes like check kiting, card-cracking, Felony Lane Gang, and phishing, to the ever increasing threats of high-tech cyber-enabled criminal activity, such as point of sale (POS) network Intrusions, logical and physical attacks on ATMs, and gas pump & POS skimming to obtain the financial DNA of millions of victims. Students will also examine how the latest solution to combat access device fraud, EMV (Europay/Mastercard/Visa Chip Card) technology, will affect the future of cyber and financial crimes in the U.S.  Students will examine whether EMV technology can actually reduce criminal activity in the U.S. or just create a whole new set of problems for investigators. 3 credits.
