The Internet, like any other technology, can be a force for good, as well as bad. We are all well aware of the many benefits that the Internet brings to our lives, but there is a dark side too.

Increasingly, criminals of all hues, and paedophiles are making more sophisticated use of the Internet to lure new victims.

We talk to Dr Grainne Kirwan, an expert in this area, based at the Dún Laoghaire Institute of Art, Design & Technology, about what the   cyber criminals are up to, and how they have become more sophisticated in their online activities.
