Abstract

Computer and Internet technology has become a vital part of a daily life for many as it has brought many enhancements to the quality of many individuals' lives. Although advances in computer and Internet technology are utilised by many people for various respectable reasons, at the same time it has become a tool in the hands of cybercriminals for various nefarious reasons. Cybercrime has become a fast-growing type of crime where more and more criminals exploit the speed, convenience and anonymity of the Internet to perpetrate various criminal activities that have no border. This paper examines the phenomenon of cyber crime and the difficulties and challenges that it presents due to the way that it is being regulated in England and Wales. A major focus will be placed on the area of hacking. To this end, the effectiveness of the Computer Misuse Act in dealing with cybercrimes both in the past and in the future will be examined.
