Cybercrime and Cybersecurity may be considered two sides of the same coin with intersecting processes surrounding their practises. Whilst the former broadly refers to crimes involving computers or the internet, the latter refers to the measures used or ought to be used to shield against these behaviours. That said, in increasing cybersecurity practices are we combatting cybercrime? The answer is not as simple as it seems. There are fundamental differences as to how these terms have come to be understood. Cybercrime and Cybersecurity have now been afforded their own realm of laws and regulations, veering off on different paths, paths which signify a variance in treatment to the players involved, such as the victim and the perpetrator. The talk will focus on all these issues and more whilst outlining the salient features of the applicable laws including the Maltese Criminal Code, the NIS Directive and Data Protection laws.
