Online crime, or cybercrime, refers to a variety of crimes carried out online using the internet. For example, through computers, laptops, tablets, internet-enabled televisions, games consoles and smart phones.
Cyber-enacted crimes can only be committed on the internet, such as stealing confidential information that’s stored online. While cyber-enabled crimes are carried out online, but could be committed without the use of the internet. For example, sexual grooming, stalking or harassment, bullying, and financial or romance fraud.
