Understanding Computer Crimes In Today’s Day And Age

Technology has taken over the world in recent years, changing the way we communicate with each other, our entertainment and many aspects of daily life. However, it has also created new types of crime that did not exist before. Computer crimes have been on the rise, and it is important to understand what they are and how to protect yourself against them.

At the Law Offices of Joseph Lesniak, LLC, we specialize in defending against all types of computer crimes. In this blog post, we will discuss two types of computer crimes: cyberbullying and internet stalking.

What is Cyberbullying?

Cyberbullying is defined as electronic harassment or intimidation on social media sites, text messages, or through other online means. Cyberbullying can include posting disturbing images, spreading rumors or gossip and saying mean or hurtful things through email, chat rooms or social media platforms. In most cases, the victim is left feeling helpless, vulnerable, and exposed.

The implications of cyberbullying can be devastating. Victims can suffer from depression, anxiety, and in some cases, turn to suicide. In Pennsylvania, there are laws in place to punish individuals who engage in any form of cyberbullying. If you or a loved one becomes a victim of cyberbullying, it is imperative to seek help immediately from a qualified attorney.

What is Considered Internet Stalking?

Internet stalking is the act of repeatedly following or harassing someone through the internet, social media, or email. This can include posting threatening messages, continually sending unwanted messages, or hacking into someone’s accounts. Often a victim of internet stalking feels afraid or unsafe, and privacy is violated.

Internet stalking is taken very seriously by law enforcement and can result in criminal prosecution. In such a case, it is essential to contact a law firm like The Law Offices of Joseph Lesniak, LLC, where you can be guided through the legal process.
