In the 2020 cyber police KA Bareskrim Polri confirmed that there had been a significant increase in cyber activity. This study aims to examine law enforcement as an effort to overcome cybercrime and efforts to deal with the occurrence of mayantara crime. The researcher uses a normative juridical approach that is using a positivist legal idea. This concept oversees the law as a normative system that is independent, closed and detached from the real life of society. Law enforcement in overcoming cybercrimes in Indonesia has not been implemented optimally. The factor that has the most influence on the weakness of existing law enforcement in dealing with cybercrimes in the anatomy of transnational crime is the legal factor (legal substance) which contains many weaknesses and law enforcement factors. Efforts to overcome these crimes can be in the form of preventive efforts and repressive efforts. Preventive efforts are preventive efforts made to prevent the emergence of a crime within the scope of society. Repressive efforts are one of the efforts that are conceptual in nature, where these efforts are carried out after the occurrence of a crime.
