Course Overview

Aimed at practitioners specialising in criminal law, this bite-size webinar will offer an overview of some of the most common cyber enabled crimes including fraud, Intellectual Property crime and the online marketplace for illegal items.

Consideration will also be given to the evidentiary requirements when proving and offence and the issues surrounding prosecution.
