"Cyber-Crime Forces U. Iowa Police to Get Wired"

August 01, 2000  | 

The University of Iowa Public Safety department has prepared itself for a rising tide of Internet crime by having its officials participate in week-long cybercrime workshops this year. Sgt. Duane Papke of the Public Safety department says the university eventually expects to begin dealing withcybercrime on a daily basis. Cybercrime investigators track suspicious emails by examining the headers, particularly thedelivery information, and then study the message path to determine the ISP, says Doug Jones, an associate professor of computer science at the University of Iowa.

Cooperation between investigators and the ISP usually helps to identifythe sender of the message, Jones says. Jane Drews, the university's information technology security officer, says existing laws that were not crafted to address cybercrime are usually used to prosecute crime on the Internet.
