2) The objectives of the project: to find out what methods of prevention of cybercrime exist and ways to combat it?

3) Type of project: scientific – research.

II Introduction

Today we live and work in a world of global connectivity. We can carry on casual conversation or make multi-million dollar transactions and transactions with people on the other side of the planet quickly and inexpensively. The proliferation of personal computers, free access to the Internet, and a booming market for new communication devices have changed the way we spend our leisure time and the way we do business.

The way crimes are committed is also changing. The availability of global digital technologies opens up new opportunities for unscrupulous individuals. Businesses and consumers alike have lost millions of dollars “with the help” of computer-savvy criminals. Worse still, computers and networks can be used to create alarm, create panic in anticipation of violent attacks – and even to coordinate and carry out terrorist activities. Unfortunately, in many cases, law enforcement is lagging behind criminals, lacking the technology and skilled personnel to deal with the new and rapidly growing threat called cybercrime.

Cybercrime[4] is a general name for computer offenses ( hacking files, stealing secrets and money from bank accounts ), as well as computer hooliganism ( introducing viruses, etc. ).

Based on the foregoing, we can conclude that cybercrime is one of the global problems of our time.

The purpose of the work: to find out what methods of prevention of cybercrime exist and ways to combat it?

Based on the goal, the following tasks were set:

1) Find out who hackers and cybersquatters are.

2) Conduct a survey on the topic of preventing and combating cybercrime among ordinary Internet users in order to find out how often ordinary people encounter a similar problem and whether they know how to deal with it.

Object of study : cybercrime

Subject of study: search for methods for preventing and combating cybercrime.

Research methods: questioning.

III Ways to combat cybercrime

In the last three decades, there has been a global trend of migration of all kinds of criminal activity into cyberspace. And our country did not stand aside here.

The reasons for this are simple. The main one is profitability. The amounts that can be stolen using various IT tools are the same as with “traditional” crime, if not more. And to do this is much easier both from a technical and moral point of view. An armed attack requires a significant investment of time, money and careful preparation, and the slightest failure almost inevitably leads to the failure of the entire operation. But cyberfraud can be successful even when things don’t go quite the way they were originally intended. In the end, you can just choose another target. Moreover, simple and fairly cheap tools are used for criminal encroachments. To work with the botnet control center, you do not need anything other than a regular personal computer with Internet access. At the same time, the use of this kind of tools with a Web interface is no more difficult than setting up a router targeted at the consumer market.

On the other hand, the level of risk associated primarily with the extraterritoriality of the network is significantly lower. It is easy to rob someone who is in a completely different country, and thus simply be outside the jurisdiction of its law enforcement agencies. And this is aggravated by the fact that the legislation of many states (here they call Belarus, Bulgaria, Indonesia, Macedonia, Moldova, Ukraine, Thailand) is noticeably late, so that some acts may well be outside the criminal code. As a result, criminals either go unpunished, or, as they say, get off with a slight fright. In addition, these crimes are not associated with violence, which often misleads judges and prosecutors. Even if we are talking about the theft of very large sums. Truly ruthless to cybercriminals only in China and the United States.
To commit a sufficiently significant crime of this direction, deep knowledge in this area is required. People with such skills and knowledge are called hackers.

Hacker[1] {German} Hacker < hacken - hook, hook} - inf. an amateur computer scientist who penetrates other people's databases for the purpose of entertainment or to obtain secret information (code, number, amounts of money accounts, etc.); computer cheat. Wed cracker. English hacker.
