Firstly ken would be likely to be looking at theft. A person is guilty of theft if he dishonestly appropriates property belonging to another with the intention to permanently deprive that other of it. The fact that ken has appropriated the property ‘services done’ and had the ‘intention to permanently deprive’ has obviously been satisfied. One of the problems is ‘property belonging to another’ it may be argued that Norma’s ‘services done’ on the jacket rise the question of who is in ‘possession or control’ of them. This can be seen in the cause of Turner where Norma has formed a ‘proprietary right or interest’ by ‘services done’.
Despite what the ACLU thinks that obtaining personal records is unconstitutional, it allows the government to get hold of certain records, if needed, to aid in an investigation. Investigators may need to examine business records in order to solve certain crimes. The ACLU says that this violates the First and Fourth Amendment by infringing upon freedom of speech and conducting searches without a warrant. However, in matters concerning national security, the government should be able conducted these searches despite the fact that it violates the First Amendment. Since law enforcement is able to obtain business records, it would only make sense for federal agents to access records in national security cases from federal courts.
This can be considered false imprisonment, also negligence. Walter failed to act reasonably even though he did not intend for harm to occur he implied harm could come about if Steve did not tell him the truth. This could also be considered strict liability. Scenario: BUGusa, Inc., Plant Parking Lot What defenses may be available to BUGusa, Inc.? Explain your answer.
Common-law larceny has been broadened by some statutes to include embezzlement and false pretenses, all three of which are often subsumed under the statutory crime of “theft”. 8. False Pretenses The crime of knowingly obtaining title to another’s personal property by misrepresenting a fact with the intent to
Since confidentiality is an issue, smartphone transmissions signals can be hacked by accidental broadcast. Third party snooping, can hack blue tooth signals that transmit confidential information. Stolen phones create a threat to business and the community through fraud. Training employees can be a measure to minimize the risks that poses a threat to cell phones. Some measures to help in information security could be aimed to data encryption, passwords, software, network security solutions and service companies offering voice encryption.
Unit 24 - Assignment 1 Introduction For this assignment I will be describing the elements of a crime which are Mens Rea and Actus Reus. Mens Rea is Latin for 'guilty mind' and it is the mental thinking behind the crime which has been committed, it refers to the intentions of the person who committed the crime. For example, when someone commits theft their intention is to permanently deprive the owner/s of the object. Actus Reus is Latin for 'guilty act' and it can either be an act or a failure to act. For example, when someone commits theft they must've physically taken something.
Batter is the unlawful physical violence on another person without their consent. Assault is a specific intent crime and battery is the commission of the specific intent. To constitute assault one has to commit an overt act from which the inference can be drawn that a violent injury was intended. Aggravated assaults are assaults with the intent to commit another offense like rape or murder. Aggravated assault can mean that assault is committed with the intention of committing an additional crime or something that involves a special circumstance.
Case Study 3 Andrew Kutanovski DeVry University Having a secure network is not an easy task to accomplish. You must cover every aspect that could possibly give an outsider the ability to gain unsecure access to the network. By having loopholes and backdoors, all of the vital information on the network is at risk of being stolen. To prevent this from happening, you must secure all incoming and outgoing information. This is called encryption; it’s the process of making an original message unreadable to unauthorized individuals.
Case Study 2: SCADA Worm Protecting the nation’s critical infrastructure is a major security challenge within the U.S. Likewise, the responsibility for protecting the nation’s critical infrastructure encompasses all sectors of government, including private sector cooperation. Mitigating the vulnerabilities between the private sector and government agencies comes with an effective IT Security Policy Framework which properly implemented can protect us from these attacks. The vulnerabilities, which vary among the products examined, include backdoors, lack of authentication and encryption, and weak password storage that would allow attackers to gain access to the systems (Zetter, 2011). The security weaknesses also make it possible to send malicious commands to the devices in order to crash or halt them, and to interfere with specific critical processes controlled by them, such as the opening and closing of valves.
Firewalls are good and help against websites that are illegitimate. It’s also good to have an antivirus on your computer to help protect against people who are trying to hack into your system. Perhaps someone is trying to gain access to your financial information; the antivirus stops them from getting in. Always make sure that when you are checking your e-mail and receive an e-mail with an attachment if you do not know who it is from do not open it. I don’t even open e-mails from people I don’t know whether it has an attachment or not.
