Cyber crime in Florida is prosecuted as a felony and the damage caused by the crime can increase the potential charges and punishment.

Here are common types of cyber crime within Florida:

  • Cyberstalking crimes where an attacker obsessively stalks someone online through social media and other means of communication to get some form of submission.
  • Identity theft crimes where someone’s credit card or social security information is stolen and used to commit theft or fraud.
  • Hacking crimes where someone gets unauthorized access to a computer or network to steal personal information, get trade secrets, or disrupt business operations.
  • Malware crimes where trojans, viruses, or other malicious software change a computer’s normal functioning to commit other cyber crimes.
