    Computer-Hacking | Kangs Cybercrime Defence Solicitors

    In a world increasingly dependent upon sensitive data committed to the World Wide Web,  the volume of cyber-crime, more colloquially known as hacking, will, inevitably, continue to spiral.

    A prime example is that which occurred in May 2017 when medical records held by the NHS were accessed by offenders who demanded a substantial ransom.

    The Law | Kangs Cybercrime Defence Solicitors

    Whilst, ‘hacking’ is, as stated above, the colloquial description, the word does not appear in legislation.

    The Computer Misuse Act 1990 provides:

    Section 1  Unauthorised access to computer material.

    • A person is guilty of an offence if:
    • he causes a computer to perform any function with intent to secure access to any program or data held in any computer [or to enable any such access to be secured]
    • the access he intends to secure [or to enable to be secured] is unauthorised; and
    • he knows at the time when he causes the computer to perform the function that that is the case

    Sentencing Available To The Courts:

    Under Section 1 (3):

    • A Magistrates’ Court may impose a term of imprisonment not exceeding twelve months, a fine not exceeding the statutory maximum, or both.
    • A Crown Court may impose a term of imprisonment not exceeding two years, a fine or both.
