Abstract


The era of scientific and technological development has witnessed an extensive use of Internet and electronic devices in various aspects of life.

Combating this kind of crime requires international cooperation. Therefore, many States have called for the need to define cybercrime and to hold conventions to adopt effective legal framework to combat and restrict the progress of cybercrime worldwide.
This study concluded that cooperative mechanisms are needed to coordinate and unify joint efforts and to modernize means of combating cybercrime using the latest techniques. In addition, it is necessary to upgrade existing mechanisms and develop other methods to achieve various aspects of cooperation.
