  • Knowledge is power: limiting liability and losses

    In some of this series of articles on cyber crime we have looked at the ways in which cyber crime, and in particular, identity theft, is committed. We have also explored some of the ways in which the unsuspecting victim may become liable themselves and the pitfalls of self-help investigations by victims.
