What is cybercrime?

Cyber-dependent crime is directed at information networks and information systems. The crime in question can only be committed by using computers and information networks. Such offences include disruption of information systems (denial-of-service attacks), computer break-ins and damage to data.

Cyber-enabled crimes utilise information networks and information systems in committing a crime. In cyber-enabled crime, offences are more traditional in nature, such as fraud, drug offences or money laundering, but new ways of committing them are enabled by information networks. In other words, information networks enable the committing of the crime in question, but the offence is not directed at an information network or information system.
