With tens of billions of dollars in annual revenue, the illegal wildlife trade is one of the most lucrative types of international organized crime. Violence, drug trafficking, human trafficking, corruption, and wildlife crime frequently coexist. Numerous criminal networks organize their operations, locate customers, and sell their illegal goods via mobile devices, social media platforms, the dark web, e-commerce, and instant messaging. Due to the internet's rapid expansion, an increasing number of individuals frequently communicate and operate a business via virtual services and applications. Cybercrime is any criminal activity that involves a computer, networked device, or network.

Internet-related wildlife crimes typically involve the unlicensed trade in endangered wild animals and their products. These acts of violence on animals are typically designed to access, locate, and gather information about endangered species, which are then smuggled and sold on the black market or killed for their horns, skin, and teeth. Digital wildlife crime can be reduced with the help of cybersecurity. Protecting systems, networks, and programs from cyberattacks is the practice of cybersecurity.
