Cybercrime law includes laws related to computer crime, cyber crime, information crimes, communications crimes and technology crimes. While the internet and the digital economy represent a significant opportunity, it is also an enabler for criminal activity. Cybercrime law is laws that create the offences and penalties for cybercrimes. Cybercrime describes both:

  • crimes directed at computers, data or information communications technologies (ICTs), and
  • crimes committed by people using computers or ICT.

Cybercrime is a global problem, which requires a coordinated international response.
