A common-sense approach to using the internet
Keywords: Network crime
Most of us use the internet on a daily basis, both at home and at work. We manage our bank accounts, buy goods online, send e-mails, chat and exchange confidential information. Computers, mobile phones and tablets have become an essential part of our lives and thanks to these new technologies the possibilities are practically boundless.
However, not everyone who uses the internet has good intentions. There are also people who use the web for criminal purposes; to hack computers, steal personal data and extort money. And their methods are becoming ever more sophisticated.
To protect yourself from becoming a victim of cybercrime, use common sense when on the internet and follow a few basic rules:
Are you a victim of computer crime?
If you are in imminent danger to life or limb contact the next police station or call the emergency number 117.
If you wish to report suspicious matter on the internet to fedpol, complete the online reporting form. Specialists will check your information, take the necessary measures if possible and forward the case where appropriate to the authorities responsible.
