Bahrain: Cybercrime Crackdown

December 22, 2014

Bahrain issued Law no. 60 of 2014 in an effort to combat cybercrime and set punishments for offences committed on the Internet.

The law describes the penalties on violations all cybercrimes committed, such as gaining unauthorized access to a computer system or network, eavesdropping over private transmissions, or presenting forged data as true.

This move comes as an addition to the already established GCC cybercrime law, which was issued last year.
