Highlights:
Cyber crime is a crime in which a computer is the object of the crime (hacking, phishing, spamming) or is used as a tool to commit an offense (bank frauds, internet crimes). Cyber criminals may use computer technology to access personal information, business trade secrets or use the internet for exploitative or malicious purposes. Criminals can also use computers for communication and document or data storage. Criminals who perform these illegal activities are often referred to as hackers. Cyber crime may also be referred to as computer crime. Common types of cybercrime include online bank information theft, identity theft, online predatory crimes and unauthorized computer access. More serious crimes like cyber terrorism are also of significant concern.
Cybercrime encompasses a wide range of activities, but these can generally be broken into two categories:
1. Crimes that target computer networks or devices. These types of crimes include viruses and denial-of-service (DoS) attacks.
2. Crimes that use computer networks to advance other criminal activities. These types of crimes include cyber stalking, phishing and fraud or identity theft. Cyber security is the practice of protecting systems, networks, and programs from digital attacks. These cyber attacks are usually aimed at accessing, changing, or destroying sensitive information; extorting money from users; or interrupting normal business processes. Implementing effective cyber security measures is particularly challenging today because there are more devices than people, and attackers are becoming more innovative.
