Computer-related offenses are an emerging area of criminal law and, therefore, not very precisely regulated, as the Criminal Code only provides for a limited number of computer-related offenses: computer fraud, computer forgery, illegal access to a computer system, altering the integrity of computer data, disrupting the functioning of computer systems or unauthorized transfer of computer data.

The regulation of cybercrime does not stop there; however, in addition to these provisions, there are special relevant laws, such as Law 365/2002, but also European regulations, for example, Directive (EU) 2019/713 on combating fraud and counterfeiting in connection with non-cash means of payment.

Thus, given the problematic legal framework to navigate and the specific complexity of cases involving computer-related matters, we recommend that you contact one of our lawyers specialized in this field if you are suspected of committing a crime of this type to ensure that you benefit from an effective defense in the criminal proceedings.
