Cyber and Computer Crime

Cyber and Computer Crime

Cyber and computer crime is one of the fastest growing areas of crime, not only in the UK but throughout the world. Cyber crime, also known as internet crime or e-crime, can include the creation and spreading of viruses, hacking, counterfeit software, electronic fraud and identity theft to name but a few aspects.

Whilst prosecution in relation to e-crime can often be under the Misuse of Computers Act, prosecutions can also be brought for fraud, money laundering, theft, sexual offences or other offences. As there can be an international dimension to online crimes, extradition could also become an issue.

If you have been accused of involvement in internet crime of any kind, it is vital that you consult an experienced e-crime defence solicitor at the earliest opportunity. Our solicitors are able to advise you in relation to e-crime from the outset of an accusation through to any criminal proceedings against you, allowing you to be in the best position in terms of your defence case at all times. Contact us 24 hours a day on our emergency crime line 01254 606050 or alternatively, you can email us.

Internet Crime Defence Solicitors

Due to the growing nature of internet crime, the government are increasingly cracking down on this area. Following the unprecedented growth in computer related crime in recent years, the UK government recently ranked cybercrime as the foremost threat to national security.

Our internet crime defence solicitors can assist those being investigated for any e-crime offence, from Computer Misuse Act offences, Fraud Act offences to allegations of breach of copyright and ‘cloning’ investigations.
