Cybercrime and IT criminal law

The lawyers of ECKSTEIN & KOLLEGEN defend against accusations of crimes related to cybercrime and advise companies that have been victims of cyberattacks. The relevant offences under IT criminal law include computer fraud, spying and interception of data, data theft and computer sabotage. The common criterion of IT criminal law is that the offences are committed using information technology. In addition to attacks on third-party computer systems or acts of fraud on the Internet, acts related to the Darknet, such as trafficking in narcotics or prohibited goods, play a major role. Encrypted communication networks and end devices (so-called crypto phones) such as Enrochats and Sky ECC have become particularly important in recent times. In these areas, special knowledge of legal regulations in a constantly changing technical environment is crucial. ECKSTEIN & KOLLEGEN lawyers are equally experienced in complex proceedings related to IT criminal law as they are in advising companies harmed by cybercrime on how to protect their interests.
