Course Description

Computer interconnectivity has produced enormous benefits but has also enabled criminal activity that exploits this interconnectivity for financial gain and other malicious purposes, such as Internet fraud, child exploitation, identity theft, and terrorism. Efforts to address cybercrime include activities associated with protecting networks and information, detecting criminal activity, investigating crime, and prosecuting criminals. 

GAO's objectives were to

  • Determine the impact of cybercrime on our nation's economy and security.
  • Describe key federal entities, as well as nonfederal and private sector entities, responsible for addressing cybercrime.
  • Determine challenges being faced in addressing cybercrime.


To accomplish these objectives, GAO analyzed multiple reports, studies, and surveys and held interviews with public and private officials.

Cyber fraud with government entities is the most serious misconduct. A cybercrime against the government is also regarded as Cyber Terrorism. Government cyber fraud involves the hacking of websites, military websites, or the distribution of government propaganda.
