Therefore, Intrusion Detection System’s (IDS) role is becoming important in tackling cyber security. Recent advances in machine learning and artificial intelligence has opened up many
Cyberbullying In the United States of America, Cyberbullying has been in the rise. The problem has been facilitated that, technology use has been on the increase by almost everybody. The fact that technological devices such as Smartphone, iPad and laptops has made it easy for people to access the internet and use it for own reasons.

The victims of anything have always been the biggest beneficiaries of the same (Donegan, 2012). In the case of cyberbullying, the young are the victims of the epidemic are at the same time the oppressors. Even though most literature suggests the prevalence of the vice is among teenagers, there is a possibility of having adults as victims too. Cyberspace allows the weak to hide behind keyboards and do what they could not do physically to their victim. Governments try each day to protect their people through legislation, but the continued advocacy on human rights makes it impossible to track what people do in the cyberspace.

As identity fraud usually take place in internet, it is hard to track. So it is important to prevent it from happening. Environmental law violation is another crime that affect society enormously.
Identity theft Identity theft is a crime that has existed for centuries. However, modern technologies such as the Internet have duplicated and simplified the different ways to commit this crime. Not so long ago, birth certificates or other identification documents were rare; it was thus not too difficult to pass yourself off as another person. While people have more identification documents and other personal data nowadays, identity theft and/or identity fraud are becoming more and more common crimes. Most of these data are stored online, hacking a storage device could provide therefore numerous of identities to use.
For example, criminals have found ways to attack unsecured laptops and smartphones to gain access into conversations and data related to business operations such as deals, trade secrets and even accounts and the associated customer databases.
