The present article takes a step towards approbating the topic of cybersecurity as scientific and applies heuristic approach in order to name its main problems which in themselves are on the border of several disciplines. As a shared space, Internet security should be a shared responsibility and security should begin from the individual. The article provides guidelines for ensuring the internet user’s own security and relevant conclusions are made. The situation on legal measures to combat cybercrime in Bulgaria and the EU is reflected.
Key words: cybercrime, security, social engineering
