Cybercrime is criminal activities carried out by means of computers or the internet.Cybercrime is the most important issue in the United Arab Emirates because of the danger to society and individuals. Therefore, the UAE court has issued strict laws and penalties for anyone who commits the crime. In addition, sociologists were interested in studying the social effects of the use of technology; the modern social networks, the means of interaction that became widespread, and issues related to cybercrime.I am interested in this because I have seen the spread and gravity of these crimes in the present and in the future.There is a statistical show that The Department of Cybercrime in the Dubai Police General Investigation and Criminal Investigation Department recorded cybercrime a 23% increase in cybercrime by 1820 in 2015, compared to 1581 cases in 2014 and 1513 in 2013.My research question it will be about What are the laws and penalties?
