What is the definition of a cybercrime?

The definition of a cybercrime is not that simple and perhaps that is why there has not been a single definition that is collectively approved by the entire law. However, the definition mentioned below is a commonly accepted definition and generally used by various bodies in compliance with Indian law.

What is cybercrime?

For this reason, cybercrime actually encompasses any criminal act that, although before it was only carried out in the physical world, can now be perpetrated remotely, on the Internet, through computer tools and equipment.

What about cybercrime?

Cybercrime

For as long as computers have existed, there has been cybercrime. However, with millions of computer attacks and nearly a billion victims of cybercrime activities each year, cybercrime has never been as widespread as it is now. Anyone can fall victim to cybercrime, and the fact that we are all connected virtually puts us all at even greater risk.

Summary: Cybercrime is any criminal activity that involves a computer, whether it is the target of the crime or the tool. Every year, the global economy loses billions of dollars as a result of cybercriminal activity. Read on to learn more about the most common ways to commit cybercrime and find out how to protect yourself online.

The definition: What is cybercrime?

The term cybercrime can refer to any criminal activity that involves a computer, whether it is the tool of the crime or its target. According to the Department of Justice, all cybercrime can be organized into three categories; crimes that use computers as weapons (e.g., hacker attacks), crimes that attack a computer or other device (e.g., to access a network), and crimes in which the computer is not the primary tool but still plays an important role (e.g., storing illegally downloaded files).

With the increasing availability of the internet in recent years, the nature of cybercrime has evolved. Not so long ago, the bulk of cyber criminal activity involved illegal downloads of copyrighted content, or hate speech on the internet. Although not negligible, these activities are almost benign compared to what has come after. Today, new cases of extortion, mass surveillance, economic theft, data leakage, theft of personal information and espionage appear in the headlines almost daily.

Cybercrime has experienced unprecedented growth, so perhaps it should come as no surprise that the global economy is losing more than half a trillion dollars each year as a result of cybercriminal activity. Although many law enforcement agencies have begun to take down cybercrime, the growing trend shows no signs of acreasing. To avoid being prosecuted, some cybercriminals have moved to countries with few cybercrime laws, and have replaced dollars with the untraceable cryptocurrency.

As with offline criminal activities, most perpetrators of cybercriminal acts are motivated by economic gain. In addition to money, they are also driven by their egos, a cause they believe in, personal vendettas, a sense of notoriety, as well as a desire to improve their status in hacker circles.

What types of cybercrime are there?

Cybercrime has manifested itself in many ways and forms, some of which it does not have to associate as such. For example, even computer theft can be considered as cybercriminal activity if the perpetrator intends to use the information stored on the computer for personal gain. If someone steals a USB device with valuable information and intends to sell it on the dark web, that is also considered cybercrime.
