IT and data protection

In the context of the increasing digitization of communication, business and trade processes, typical criminal law issues are increasingly shifting towards a technological level. Legislature and judiciary have long arrived in digital reality and adopt prosecution and penalties to present circumstances. Investigators and prosecutors have established special departments for the investigation of ‘cyber crime’.

Companies and individuals increasingly find themselves facing criminal charges in connection with the usage and processing of data and the access of digital information. A growing number of offences is related to criminal offences in the world wide web.
