Cyber Law

With online activity having been on the rise, the Sultanate crossed a milestone by having in place Royal Decree No: 12/2011-The Cyber Crime Law to regulate the digital society. It classifies cyber crime broadly into two categories-Crimes towards computers and applications related to computers, and Crimes generated from computers or online activity. Hacking, supplying malicious software, etc. are crimes under the first category and phishing, internet based forgery (like stealing someone’s online banking password and using it for personal gain) etc. come within the second category. If you have been duped in any such manner, you may rely on us for drafting complaints to the ROP/Public Prosecution and for bringing offenders to task.
