Summary/Abstract: Education in the 21st century is unthinkable without the mobility attributable to information technology and the general technological progress made in this century. Today, information is one of the most important resources of advanced economies as the computer becomes an indispensable tool for any citizen belonging to the information society in which we live. As you know, our technology provides formidable tools usable in trying different learning methods, so that in place of theories on education, there might begin the development of a science of education. It cannot be an analytical science such as physics or psychology yet it rather has to be a science of design such as aeronautics or artificial intelligence. A design science of education must determine how the different models and learning environments contribute to learning, cooperation, motivation, etc. The evolution of information technology offers both advantages and disadvantages and the latter mainly refers to the multitude of possible breaches in any area that appeals to cybernetic systems. In the fight against such crimes on e-learning platforms and not only, there is required a well-established legal framework in terms of prevention, detection and punishment of those facts. Law 161/2003 represents a starting point, but to keep up with the huge diversity of crime taking place with using a simple keyboard and a click of the mouse, the legislative work should not stop here.
