Cyber Crime vs Cyber Security: what will you choose?

Deterring Youngsters from Cybercrime

It is not unusual for teenagers and young people to get involved in cybercriminal activities at an early age. Some do it for fun without realising the consequences of their actions – but the penalties can be severe. Cybercrime isn’t a victimless crime and it is taken extremely seriously by law enforcement. The minors that become involved in cybercrime often have a skill set that could be put to a positive use.

Skills in coding, gaming, computer programming, cyber security or anything IT-related are in high demand and there are many professional careers and opportunities available to anyone with IT talent and an interest in these areas.
