In 2003, new criminal legislation came into force in Bosnia and Herzegovina. It is established on the basis of international standards, legal traditions, domestic and foreign legal theories and court practices, but also according to the needs of criminal policy. Of the four criminal laws (Bosnia and Herzegovina, the Federation of BiH, the Brčko District of Bosnia and Herzegovina and the Republic of Srpska) with numerous novelties, in 2017, the Republic of Srpska passed a completely new Criminal Code. This Code, starting with international obligations, in the first place the Convention on Cybercrime (Budapest) (2003), establishes a system of criminal offenses against the security of computer data, with a system of criminal responsibility and sanctions for natural and legal parties as well as the perpetrators of these criminal offenses. The concept, elements, characteristics and forms of computer crimes in the new legislation of the Republic of Srpska are discussed in this paper.

Key words
