Cyber crime

Cybercrime is an overarching term that describes both, general criminal offenses using electronic infrastructure (computer crime), as well as specific offenses that are carried out over the Internet (Internet crime). In modern usage, however, the term primarily refers to the aspect of Internet crime. In the context of industrial networks, the focus is on identity theft, cyber-terrorism, data theft and internet fraud. Current cybercrime trends include attacks utilizing ransomware, spear phishing or social engineering, and complex hacker attacks as part of cyber terrorism and cyber warfare.
