CYBER CRIME LAWYERS
The law surrounding cyber crime is extremely complex and has undergone a great deal of development in recent years. The government has recognised the threat from cyber crime as a Tier 1 national security threat and as a result, the number of investigations and prosecutions have drastically increased.
Broadly speaking, cyber crime is any kind of criminal activity that is committed through the use of technology. As a result, there is a wide range of cyber crime offences including fraud, hacking, espionage, harassment and sexual offences. Cyber crime cases are usually investigated by specialist police special operations units or the National Crime Agency. In addition, offences contrary to the Trademarks Act and the Copyright, Designs and Patent Act are increasingly represented by private organisations such as F.A.C.T, I.F.PI and B.P.I.
Cyber Crime Specialists
The evidence in cases of cyber crime is often highly complex and technically demanding.
