When you hear ‘cybercrime,’ you probably think ‘hacking.’ And while that is a cybercrime, that’s only part of it. Cybercrime involves any criminal act dealing with computers and/or networks.
Computers can be used as the means of committing a crime, as well as the targets of the crime. Here are some examples:
- Internet fraud
- Credit card fraud
- Identity theft
- Unlawful access to a computer
- Storing illegal information
In Arizona, cybercrimes can be classified as anything from misdemeanors to felonies. Because of this, there are several punishments you could face for committing cybercrimes.
- Fines: These can range from a few hundred dollars to over $100,000.
- Jail or Prison Time: More serious crimes can result in 20 years or more.
- Probation: While the amount of time varies widely, it is typically at least one year.
