Abstract:Cybercrime is the newest security threat in the world today, and is distinct from any other threat facing the world. This paper attempts to place cybercrime in relation to other security threats, as well as illustrate the unique characteristics of cybercrime. First, an investigation of the major elements of cybercrime will be conducted. After the parameters of cybercrime have been laid out, cybercrime will be analyzed as a security threat on both domestic and international levels. Finally, current security structures will be examined for their effectiveness in controlling the threat posed by cybercrime.
