As if it came from nowhere. You are not aware of it at all. But slowly and cruelly it crawls through our intimacy. Cybercrime is what we call it. Another complication of modern technology. Our children are bullied. Sometimes they keep it hidden from us. It leads to more complications. Even things sometimes ended in suicide.
Cybercrime, as a devastating and easy way to commit crimes, has an adverse impact on the individual and society as a whole. And with its great variety it has appeared like a Frankenstein in front of us. Sometimes he uses the computer as a mother instrument with the aim of attacking an individual. Or sometimes these mere instruments themselves become victims of the genius of technology.
Yes! Genius must be told. Because the experience knowledge you need to attack a computer is a very critical thing. Surprisingly, children between the ages of 14 and 25 are the most covered criminals in this field. The question is why did it turn out to be so easy?
The great advantage of the computer is the ability to store data in a small space, it becomes a curse as a result of cybercrime. Easy accessibility is the curse. Through the complicated codes, cybercriminals look for a loophole from human guilt. Sometimes they use sophisticated but brilliant logic programs and attacks.
And see the great variety of the way. Email bombing, logic bomb, salami attack, denial of service attack, virus attack, data theft, web hijacking and latest hacking and other things. Crimes are evolving in ever-increasing numbers. In a short time it is destroying the financial information of banks and other institutions that handle money. Harassment through emails is a common phenomenon and women are the main victims of this crime. While children are helpless victims of cyber bullying. Diffusion of obscene material, pornographic element entangled them like a spider’s web. Unauthorized access through the computer system results in indecent exposure.
Not only the individual or financial institutions, but also the state faces danger. And when we talk about his threat to the state apparatus, it is not enough to describe it as a mere crime. It becomes cyberterrorism, collapsing State security, threatening official functionality, violating government structures established by law. Terrorism against humanity disrupts social harmony by propagating religious, racial, linguistic, regional, group or caste hatred. The total social balance falls into a tremendous crisis.
Since the beginning of its evolution, cybercrime has been overshadowing the field of innovation and intellect. Intellectual property rights become something of an extinct species. Software piracy, copyright, trademark and service mark infringement, computer source code theft and so on.
Laws have been introduced and applied as a reaction. Governments of different states take action, even a synchronized method is adopted to protect cyber crime, but at the end of the day, more social awareness is the only way to put an end to it. Keeping your own information is the first thing to do to avoid cyberbullying. Making your children aware of cybercrime is a priority. Particularly to strangers and chat friends, as these photographs are used as an obscene defamation tool. We need to alert them not to submit any photos online. We must monitor the sites that our children access to avoid any kind of harassment or deprivation in children. The latest updates and antivirus software are something we need to depend on. Technology is the only option to protect yourself from the technological threat. You should never forget to keep a backup to avoid data loss in case of virus contamination. We must be careful when sending the credit card number to any site that is not protected to avoid fraud. It is better to use a security program that gives control over cookies and other functionalities. And especially remembering the old proverb, ‘Prevention is better than cure’
