How to file a cyber crime complaint?


Cyber crime cannot be confined to one single definition. Technology is developing with each passing day and so are the crimes. However, the basic definition of a cyber crime is any illegal activity that uses a computer as its primary means of commission.

To tackle the issue of cyber crimes, CIDs (Criminal Investigation Departments) of various cities have opened Cyber Crime Cells in different cities. The IT Act of India clearly states that when a cyber crime has been committed it shall have global jurisdiction. Hence, a complaint can be filed at any cyber cell.

Let us have a look at the steps one has to follow to file a cyber crime complaint.

Step 1: Keep in mind that you will have to provide name, mailing address & telephone number along with an application letter, addressing the head of a cyber crime investigation cell when you go to file a complaint.

Step 2: As with almost all police cases, the complainant will have to provide the following papers and documents at the time of filing the complaint. The valid documents are, namely:

1) Server Logs
2) A copy of the defaced web page in soft copy as well as hard copy format. If any data is compromised on  the victim’s server or computer or any other network equipment, soft copy of original data and soft copy of compromised data.
3) Access control mechanism details i.e. - who had access to the computer or email of the victim?
4) List of suspects i.e. if the victim is having any suspicion on anyone.
5) All relevant information leading to the answers to following questions, namely:
 
  • What is compromised?
  • Who might have compromised the system?
  • When was the system compromised?
  • Why was the system compromised?
  • Where is the impact of the attack-identifying the target system from the network?
  • How many systems have been compromised by the attack?
