Abstract: Cybercrime, also known as computer crime, is considered to be any crime that uses a computer and a computer network. Cybercrime involves several criminal offenses and activities. As issues revolving around cybercrime have become more complex and little is known about cybercrime in general, students’ perceptions need to be explored from the perspectives of internet security and software progressions to detect criminal behavior since they are the most exposed group in technology. This study aims to explore their perceptions of this new form of aggression. This quantitative study uses a survey as a method of collecting data by recruiting 100 university students through random sampling. Data were analyzed using SPSS for the frequency, Pearson correlation, and multiple regression analysis. Results of this study indicate that there was a positive relationship between student perceptions on security and software progressions in cybercrime. In a nutshell, it is important for the stakeholders to focus on perception as a method to decrease, foresee or prevent cybercrime, and a campaign or seminar is needed to educate university students as well as schools and colleges about cyber ethics.
