Technology has advanced rapidly since the turn of the century, and this development means that the laws surrounding cyber-crime have become more complex.

With the rise of social media and advancing technology, new types of crimes and ways of committing them have developed. New laws have had to be introduced, and so it is important to speak to a cyber-crime solicitor at the earliest opportunity when accused of online criminal activity.

Categories of criminal activity

The classification of online criminal activity falls into two main categories: cyber-dependent and cyber-enabled crimes.

  • Cyber-dependent crimes are committed only through the use of IT, where devices are both the tool for committing the crime and the target of the crime
    • Examples include developing malware for financial gain, or hacking to steal or destroy data and networks
  • Cyber-enabled crimes are traditional crimes that can be increased in scale or reach with the use of IT
    • Fraud, cyber-bullying and trolling, disclosing private sexual images without consent and cyber-stalking are all examples of cyber-enabled crimes
    • Sharing and interacting with indecent imagery of children and extreme pornography are also serious cases of cyber-enabled crime

These lists are non-exhaustive, so if you are accused of committing any kind of crime online, it is vital to gain perspective and advice from a specialist cyber-crime solicitor.
