AbstractCybercrime is a crime that was created alongside the creation of the Internet. Both the Internet and cybercrime have grown at a rapid rate since their conception, but the response to cybercrime has lagged behind. Even though cybercrime has increased, efforts to police it have not followed suit and has led cybercrime to go unchecked at the local level, leaving policing efforts to be mostly on the federal level. This is partially because cybercrime has been plagued with not having a definitive definition, which causes confusion as to what is and is not a cybercrime. This paper will explore if cybercrime is under investigated, what barriers there are to cybercrime being investigated, and what could be done to get through these barriers of investigation.
