FORENSIC LINGUISTICS:A New Weapon Against Cybercrime

Screenshot 2018-11-01 at 17.59.01

The technological developments of the past decades have allowed for the emergence of new forms of covert criminal activities such as hate crimes, defamation, cyber-stalking, extortion, and identity theft. In some cases, the perpetrators can be traced; in others, however, sophisticated stealth technologies are used to mask an author’s identity, leaving language as the primary piece of evidence. This talk will discuss how Forensic Linguistics, the scientific study of language in interaction with the law, can aid in the analysis of anonymous communications. Recent examples will be presented wherein the authors of cybercriminal activities were exposed, helping law enforcement and lawyers resolve cybercriminal cases.
