Brands like Microsoft, Google, and Yahoo have changed the way the world communicates on a global scale. These multinational brands have also paved the way in terms of innovation, education and addressing the world’s most complex societal issues through research initiatives, data analysis, youth outreach, and philanthropy.

What have been the lessons learned as the field has grown and developed and technology continuously changes to impact this crime?
