What can TV journalists do to prevent cyber crime? As more and more IT services become popular, more cyber crimes occur, for example malware stealing money from someone’s Internet bank account. Some of these crimes could be prevented if the victims knew safer way to use the Internet. There are many news and articles about cyber crime, but not everyone can fully understand them. The purpose of my research is to seek ways that TV and other media can reduce the number of cyber crime victims. What kinds of media are most effective? How should we make use of them? What kinds of cyber crime may happen next?
