Computer crime is an ever-growing problem that has the potential to cause severe damage to any computer or computer network. The threat of cybercrime was once limited to worms and viruses unleashed by bored and curious hackers.

Now the threat of cybercrime encompasses a broad range of potentially illegal activities such as identity theft, financial phishing, child pornography, hacking computer networks, etc.

This new age of internet and technology dependence has put the legal system on alert for these new illegal activities that previously didn't exist. Therefore, new legislation is constantly be introduced, passed, and debated in order to investigate and prosecute computer criminals. In addition to passing nation-wide laws, there have also been calls for international treaties seeking to address this problem on a world wide scale. The Convention on Cybercrime was the first treaty seeking to address the establishment of international cybercrime laws.
