Cybercrime and Cyber Criminology

Welcome to the “Cybercrime at U.A.” website, a hub for researchers, practitioners, policymakers, students, and anyone interested in cybercrime and cybersecurity-related topics. This site reports the latest information on cutting-edge research and other cyber initiatives at the University of Alabama involving international cybersecurity matters, criminal activities on the Tor Network, and online criminality.
The Joint Electronic Crimes Task Force (JECTF), partnering with the University of Alabama, announced the completion of the Network Intrusion Lab (NIL) in early 2017. The NIL is located in Cyber Hall and houses a large training space serving both law enforcement officers and UA students, as well as secure, dedicated research space for criminologists and forensic examiners. Visit the JECTF page for details on evidence intake hours and procedures, internship opportunities, and additional information.

JECTF interns met AG Steve Marshall during his visit to the task force in February 2017.
