Computer Offences QLD

Computer offences have increased over the last couple of decades, as advances in technology have allowed criminals to commit sophisticated illegal actions.
The crimes committed via technology vary between basic offences and serious offences, and can include such things as fraud, theft, child pornography and serious hacking. There are also some other crimes that can be perceived as cyber-crimes, such as online bullying and sexting.
