Cybercrime is any type of criminal activity carried out through a computer or the internet. This is an area of law that has developed exponentially over the last decade due to advances in technology and computers being used in new and innovative ways to commit crime.

There is a range of offences covered by the term cybercrime, including fraud, harassment, hacking, sexual offences, and espionage. Due to the very nature of the internet, these crimes can have a multi-national aspect and involve international agencies.

If you are facing charges of cybercrime, you must get advice and representation as early as possible. Instructing a specialist lawyer can help you understand the complex regulations in this area of criminal law. Get in touch  to speak to a member of our team.

What is cybercrime?

Cybercrime is an extremely progressive and complicated area of law that it is continually evolving and developing due to the rapid changes in technology. By its very nature, it is a borderless crime and this can result in cases having a cross-border element. Our team has offices in Europe and Africa and can advise on any multi-jurisdictional aspects that arise in your case, including outside of your home country.

Cybercrime uses ever-changing technology to perform criminal activities including hacking, malware, botnets and the darknet. Offences can be committed against an individual, companies or even governments. There are pure cybercrimes that are used to gain unauthorised access to a device or to deny the legal owner access to their own system. There are also cyber-enabled crimes including theft, fraud and sexual offences that are using technology to carry out offences that were already in existence.
