Cyber crime (also known as high-tech crime) is crime in which computers and/or networks (ICT) play a role. The criminal activities are digital in nature and can be directed against people, property and organisations or against electronic communication networks and information systems. Well-known examples of cyber crime are identity fraud and (ethical) hacking. Other examples of cyber crime are


  • DDoS attacks;
  • (spear) phishing;
  • SQL injections;
  • prohibited activities via TOR networks;
  • ransomware;
  • cyberterrorism;
  • digital espionage;
  • distribution of viruses/malware;


If you or someone close to you is suspected of cybercrime, it is important to hire a specialized attorney. Cybercrime is complex and technology, legislation and investigation are ever-changing. Christian Visser and Michael Berndsen specialize in handling criminal cases in the area of cybercrime.


Penalty for cybercrime

Many people wonder what punishment someone can expect for cybercrime, but that question can never be answered just like that. Punishment is tailor-made. In the case of a conviction, the judge looks at all kinds of factors, such as the circumstances under which the offence was committed, the person of the accused, the maximum sentence and judgments in similar cases. The lawyers at our firm can make a realistic assessment of a possible penalty, even if it is ultimately up to the court to make the decision.
