La lutte contre la cybercriminalité : de l’abondance de la norme à sa perfectibilité


  • Brigitte Pereira


The development of communication networks, the spread of the Internet, as well as easy and continuous access to sensitive data within companies, have led to the increase of cybercrime. If the crime is inherent in societies, it is not less a problem regarding its evolution : linked to the economic development of land, sea and air spaces, crime is now also in cyberspace. This is the reason why the fight against cybercrime was the subject of a dense normative development. However, the standard of nature repressive, even very highly developed, covers a certain relativity. While there are a multitude of offences committed in cyberspace, the determination of responsibilities includes the difficulties whether hosting providers, Internet access providers, or publishers. Moreover, because this crime covers a global dimension, the localization of the acts, arouses discussions on the application of the territoriality of cybercrime. In light of the specific difficulties to understand this type of crime strongly affecting the economic sector, international cooperation is presented as an effective means to counter it. However, the development of international cooperation is conditioning.
