Cybercrime and security
Cybercrime and cybersecurity is a fast growing area of concern with more and more people exploiting the speed, convenience and anonymity of the Internet to commit an ever widening range of criminal activities.
Cybercrime is a term used to define any crime in which a computer or electronic device is the object of the crime (hacking, phishing, spamming) or used as a tool to commit an offence (cyberstalking, hate crimes).
