The Law On Cyber Crime

The internet is constantly growing. It holds a wealth of information and connects millions of people across the world. It is a great tool and resource, but it can be open to abuse.

As well as there being a lot of useful information, you need to be aware that there is also a lot of offensive and illegal material on the internet.

In terms of the law, there is a difference between something that’s offensive and something that’s illegal. But you are not expected to know the law in detail – if you see something that worries you, you should:

  • tell a responsible adult
  • tell a teacher
  • tell your safer schools officer
