MAYER LUX, Laura  and  VERA VEGA, Jaime. The crime of cyber espionage: Definition and delimitation. Rev. chil. derecho tecnol. [online]. 2020, vol.9, n.2, pp.221-256. ISSN 0719-2584.

This article analyses the crime of cyber espionage, with an emphasis on its definition and delimitation. For this purpose, it starts by briefly examining its unlawful character in regards to other cybercrimes stricto sensu. Subsequently, it addresses its meaning and scope, its relationship with other crimes and some problems facing its punishment. Finally, it also makes suggestions for its future legal reform considering what is established in the Convention on Cybercrime of the Council of Europe.

Keywords : Cybercrimen; hacking; ilegal access; cyber sabotage; cyber fraud.
