Cybercrime is criminal activity involving the use of computers, networks, or other digital devices to commit offenses such as hacking, identity theft, fraud, and cyberbullying. With technology making its way into every facet of modern life, cybercrime has become a growing threat to individuals, businesses, and governments worldwide.
In South Carolina, cybercrime is a serious charge and comes with severe penalties. Depending on the type and severity of the offense, cybercrime can be charged as a misdemeanor or felony, and the penalties can include fines, imprisonment, and probation. For example, unauthorized computer access is a second-degree computer crime and will be charged as a misdemeanor. Penalties include up to three years in prison and a fine of up to $10,000.
