Part III Other Relevant International Regimes and Issues, 16 Transnational Organised Crime and Cybercrime
Edited By: Pierre Hauck, Sven Peterke
Cybercrime has not only become a new form of organised crime, in which a network of independent perpetrators cooperate on a case-by-case basis without an enduring, hierarchical structure, but is also gaining increasing attention from traditional organised crime groups. With cybercrime easily crossing geographical borders, a closer look at the international law framework on the fight against cybercrime is warranted, including but not limited to the Council of Europe Convention on Cybercrime. This chapter focuses on cyber-related aspects of substantive criminal law, criminal procedure, and jurisdiction, as well as an analysis of the core challenges and typical phenomena of cybercrime.
