    Cybercrime is a violation of law that occurs online or on a computer. Although this is a newer division of law, it is still a serious offense in California. A large portion of law enforcement activity has been dedicated to investigating cybercrime, so it is important to stay informed on new laws and possible consequences. Below are a few of the offenses that could be considered a cybercrime:

    (1) Knowingly accesses and without permission alters, damages, deletes, destroys, or otherwise uses any data, computer, computer system, or computer network in order to either (A) devise or execute any scheme or artifice to defraud, deceive, or extort, or (B) wrongfully control or obtain money, property, or data.
    (2) Knowingly accesses and without permission takes, copies, or makes use of any data from a computer, computer system, or computer network, or takes or copies any supporting documentation, whether existing or residing internal or external to a computer, computer system, or computer network.
    (3) Knowingly and without permission uses or causes to be used computer services.
    (4) Knowingly accesses and without permission adds, alters, damages, deletes, or destroys any data, computer software, or computer programs which reside or exist internal or external to a computer, computer system, or computer network.
