Cybercrimes have risen so
dramatically in recent years that they have seemingly replaced old-fashioned,
organized crime.

The proliferation of technology devices
and other equipment; their pervasive use across age, gender, socioeconomic and
geographic boundaries; and, for many, a false sense of information security
have merged to create a perfect storm for cybercriminal activity. In fact,
cybercrimes have risen so dramatically in recent years that they have seemingly
replaced old-fashioned, organized crime.

A cybercrime is defined as an intended
act involving the use of computers or other technologies, and the criminal
activity must take place in a virtual setting, such as the Internet.2 Cybercrimes
share three elements:

1. Tools and techniques to perpetrate a crime

2. Approach or methodology for executing the criminal plan — known as
a vector

3. Crime itself that is the end result of those plans and activities
(a cybercrime is the ultimate objective of the criminal’s activities)


 “The modern
thief can steal more with a computer than with a gun. Tomorrow’s terrorist may
be able to do more damage with a keyboard than with a bomb” Babu, Maya (2004).
