TIP OF THE WEEK

Cyber Bullying — The most common cybercrimes carried out today are hacking, child sexual abuse, copyright infringement, child pornography, selling illegal substances through trafficking, posting of unsuitable content and issues concerning privacy when confidential information is deflected lawfully.

Cybercrime, particularly that which exploits the young and children not only has a devastating effect on them today, but has the potential to produce scars and issues for generations to come.

Cyber harassment, on the other hand, is a similar but distinct cybercrime. Most general harassment types include sexual, racial, religious or otherwise. Trespassing the privacy of a naturalized person of a state, city, town or other community brings us the harassment of another related field under cybercrime, which is again serious. Nobody wants to let anyone get access to the very important and extremely sensitive information of him or her.
