Hacking, CyberStalking & Cyber Bullying

You don’t have to be a victim

Computer Crime, Internet Hacking, Wireless Hacking & Cyber Bullying (which may include Cyber Stalking) represent some of the more ‘ugly side’ or ‘darker side’ of the net. The internet can be a tremendous tool. However, like most swords, there is a double edge that can be extremely dangerous. Most anti-virus software and/or firewalls can protect from these types of criminal activity, however, hackers can and do, still get through the best firewalls and anti-virus software to compromise and/or steal your sensitive data, make threats against you, your business and those close to you. THIS TYPE OF ACTIVITY IS A CRIME. However, gathering the data to prove this requires experienced Forensic Examiners so that once the data has been obtained, it can be admissible in a court of law.



Over half of the United States have enacted “cyberstalking” or “cyberharassment” laws or have laws that explicitly include electronic forms of communication within more traditional stalking or harassment laws. This chart identifies only state laws that include specific references to electronic communication.

Cyberstalking is a crime where the victim is harassed by electronic communication, like email, instant messages (IM), or even discussion groups. Frequently the stalker attacks the victim for reasons of anger, revenge or control. The term can also apply to a “traditional” stalker who uses technology to trace and locate their victim and their movements more easily (e.g. using Facebook notifications to know what party they are attending).



A cyberstalker’s intent is to harm their intended victim using the anonymity and untraceable distance of technology. In many situations, the victims never discover the identity of the cyberstalkers who hurt them, despite their lives being completely upended by the perpetrator.
