In Singapore, cybercrime is categorised into two clusters of crimes:

  • Cyber-dependent Crime – Offences under the Computer Misuse Act (CMA) in which the computer is a target. This includes offences such as hacking, website defacements, ransomware etc.

  • Cyber-enabled Crime – Offences in which the computer was used to facilitate the commission of offence. Examples of cyber-enabled crime include online scams, online harassment and cyber extortion, and other Penal Code offences committed via an online medium.
