Abstract: Cybercrime's 'definitions' are largely determined by the context in which it is used. The root of cybercrime is a small number of actions that compromise the confidentiality, credibility, or availability of computer data or systems. Beyond that, computer-related actions for personal or financial gain or harm, such as identity-related crime and computer content-related acts (all of which come under a broader definition of the word "cybercrime"), do not lend themselves easily to legal definitions of the term. The aim of this study was to look into the knowledge of cybercrime among Teacher Trainees. The study included 200 B.Ed. students from three separate education colleges in Ludhiana: B.C.M. College of Education, Malwa College of Education for Women, and Partap College of Education. There were 50 males and 150 females among the 200 B.Ed. students. The researcher developed his own scale of cybercrime knowledge. This scale has 42 sentences, 24 of which are positive statements and the other 18 are negative statements. Each claim was rated on a five-point scale. According to the findings male and urban Teacher Trainees were both more conscious about cybercrime than female and rural Teacher Trainees respectively.

Keywords: Cyber crime1, Awareness2, Teacher Trainees3.
