The Commission on Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice (CCPCJ) was established in 1992, and authorized by the United Nations General Assembly in 2006 to function as the principal policymaking body of the United Nations in the field of crime prevention and criminal justice.
 
Where there is space, there is crime. As human beings expanded their activities into cyberspace, cybercrime creeped in subsequently. The pervasiveness of cyberactivity and fast dissemination of information shifted the conventional concept of perpetrators and victims, in some cases imposing dual roles on users. The transboundary nature of cyber crime also created barriers for law enforcement. The existing laws and regulations are more often than not disappointed by the insufficient coordination when put into practice.
 
Better cooperation mechanisms for transnational crime response, and more practical im plementation methods are of urgency today. The relentless evolution of the cyber society has embroiled every single network user into a familiar yet unknown virtual world. On one hand, the scope of cybercrime itself has exponentially expanded as cyber technology updates expeditiously. It is critical that we adapt to the evolving dynamics and institute circumstantial solutions to the incorrigible problems of the cyber society. If we fall short of the efficacious solutions, precautionary measures should be implemented to tackle cybercrimes. On the other hand, the double-edged sword of cyber technology is clutched in our own hands, reminding humansociety that we shouldn’t head to either far end. Blockchain technology and the cryptocurrency, the Cloud technology and data leakage, the Big Data and the privacy crisis, technology advances are invariably pertinent to the degenerative criminal acts. Thus, stakeholders should find the technical loopholes and address them with technical means.
 
The coming of cyber-crimes corresponds to the “future shock” coined by Alvin Toffler. “It is no longer resources that limit decisions, it is the decision that makes the resources,” that’s the affecting advice he rendered us after illustrating the multi-dimensional impact from the standpoint of a 1970s futurist. Someone has to take the helm to probe into the uncertainty and the unknown. Let’s unveil the esoteric cyber crimes and empower our de cisions on tackling them right here at CCPCJ.
