This paper analyzes the most common criminal practises aligned with misuse of the internet and how such practises can bring about a negative impact on the development of the Country as a whole. In that perspective, the paper explores measures that can be exploited in countering abuse of the Cyber revolution. In looking at the most prevalent practises associated with cyber crime and computer misuse, the paper also analyzes liabilities and responses that need to be undertaken by key players in modern day to day transactions in the digital era. The negative practises highlighted as well as the counter enforcement measures evaluated are meant to guide the Country in exploiting appropriate options that would benefit Uganda in its socio-economic development as it embraces electronic commerce. The paper thus seeks to convince its readership of the fact that inability to counter cybercrime can significantly hinge on the smooth socio-economic development of any Nation.
