Hacking in Europe

Hacking: Need for Criminal Protection?

Mª del Mar Moya, from the Universidad de Alicante, made a contribution to the 2012 Annual Conference of the European Society of Criminology, in the category “Traditional and New Forms of Crime and Deviance,” under the title “Hacking: Need for Criminal Protection?”. Here is the abstract: The Act. No. 5/2010 incorporates the hacking crime in the art. 197.3 of the Spanish Criminal Code. In other words, it punishes the illicit access to information systems without destroying or altering them. With the adoption of this crime, Spain fulfils its obligation on both, the international, and especially the European level. The present article analyses the controversy about the legal interests typified in art. 197.3 Sp.CC, which justifies the self incrimination that is specific for this type of crime.
