TROY—Troy University Criminal Justice professor Bobby Moore ran into a few snags when he was working on his dissertation on the legal issues of computer-related crime.
Not only was cybercrime a subject with limited information in the year 2000, but much of the information out there was written for the already tech-savvy audience.
Moore decided to change that with the recent publication of his own textbook—Cyber Crime: Investigating High-Tech Computer Crime.
“I wrote it more or less for individuals who have little or no knowledge of computers,” Moore said. “In my experience with law enforcement, some have experience with computers, but some have none. My goal was to write something introductory on the topic for people who don’t have that knowledge.”
Moore’s text is used by universities across the county, such as Louisiana, Texas and New York.
