Cyber Crime is a fast-growing area of crime. More and more criminals are exploiting the speed, convenience, and anonymity of the Internet to commit a diverse range of criminal activities that know no borders, either physical or virtual.
These crimes can be divided into four broad areas:
- Attacks against computer hardware and software, for example, botnets, malware, and network intrusion;
- Financial crimes and corruption, such as online fraud, penetration of online financial services and phishing;
- Cyber-Crimes against property
- Cyber-Crimes against government
The changing nature of cybercrime
New trends in cybercrime are emerging all the time, with costs to the global economy running to billions of dollars.
In the past, Cyber-Crime was committed mainly by individuals or small groups. Today, we are seeing criminal organizations working with criminally minded technology professionals to commit cybercrime, often to fund other illegal activities. Highly complex, these cybercriminal networks bring together individuals from across the globe in real time to commit crimes on an unprecedented scale.
Criminal organizations turning increasingly to the Internet to facilitate their activities and maximize their profit in the shortest time. The crimes themselves are not necessarily new – such as theft, fraud, illegal gambling, and sale of fake medicines – but they are evolving in line with the opportunities presented online and therefore becoming more widespread and damaging.
