Cyber Crime

/Cyber Crime

Cyber Crime includes computer crime, online crime, information crimes, communications crimes and technology crimes. It describes both:

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

Michalsons offers workshops on this subject. Both public and private in-house workshops available, as well as an executive briefing designed to get your board on board, helping them understand the cyber security risks that may face their organisation, as well as the related legal implications.

We can also update or draft policies for your organisation that are in line with latest Cybercrime Laws. We can assist you with Incident Response, and ensure that you can admit records and evidence of cybercrime.

You can read more about cybercrime law or read the posts below for our insights.
