Data Theft and Data corruption are considered criminal offences under Article 14 of the Cyber Crimes Law. The article had stated that entering an electronic site with a stolen number, code, or password would be punished with both a fine of AED 200,000 – 500,000 and imprisonment. The penalty also applies for anyone who would disrupt the law by presenting stolen information (whether it is by designing, preparing, producing, selling, or even promoting the information).
