Cyber Choices - Children

Cyber crime is a serious criminal offence.

Anyone (including young people) who commits cyber crime could face:

  • A visit and warning from police or NCA officers
  • Computers being seized and being prevented from accessing the internet
  • Being arrested
  • A penalty or fine
  • A permanent criminal record
  • Seriously affected education and future career prospects
  • Restrictions on overseas travel
  • Up to life in prison for the most serious offences

So, if you want to increase your knowledge of cyber laws within the UK, make sure you're fully aware of the Computer Misuse Act below.
