What is Computer or Cyber Crime ?
The use of computers and online activity has risen dramatically as the use of social media, micro-blogging (i.e. twitter), e-commerce and other internet usage becomes all pervasive within our ordinary lives.
One of the consequences of increasingly living our lives online as the result of these advances in technology, is the number of people accused of cyber or online crime committed in the pursuit of new avenues of money that have been made available.
Cyber crime is a ‘catch all term’ for crimes committed through use of the internet, computers and all other digital devices.
Examples of Cyber Crime
Cyber crimes generally fall into two categories.
Firstly, these include the use of computers within “traditional” offences so that they can be committed online, in the commission of the offence such as:
- Identity Theft
- Stalking | Harassment
- Romance Fraud
- Sexual Grooming
- Hate Crimes
- Possession/Distribution of Indecent Images of children
- Financial Fraud
Secondly, offences involving the stealing of confidential information and interfering with digital rights, covering a wide array of activities including:
- Malware – applications which are used to record key strokes or obtain passwords and bank details.
- Ransomware – software which blocks access to a computer system until a sum of money is paid.
The police and other investigative agencies are constantly developing their awareness of the evidence that can be obtained through analysis of this “digital footprint” and in an ever developing, previously poorly understood area of law, legislation and judicial decisions struggle to keep up with the rapid pace of technological change.
How I Can Help
With the existence of viral computer infections and malware being widespread, the potential for information to be downloaded without any consent or knowledge is an increasing reality.
Should you find yourself accused of a computer or internet crime it is imperative that you get expert legal advice in this complex area of law as soon as possible.
Cyber Fraud Evidence
Most evidence of forensic fraud is recovered from electronic devices such as computers, laptops, tablets and smart phones which often reveals online history identifying the movement of funds, internet searches and even physical location.
Due to the high volume of data that is normally seized during computer based investigations it is vital that your legal team has the experience to deal with such investigations.
I have good relationships with expert computer witnesses who have the forensic skills to deal with and analyse this volume of complex data. These experts are highly experienced in defending individuals or companies accused of any form of cyber crime.
Alongside expert witnesses with whom we I close and established working relationships, I am often involved in challenging the technical aspects of the Prosecution’s case.
