Cybercrime is any type of illegal activity that takes place on a digital platform. Cybercrime is malicious activity with a broad range. Such activities could include cyberbullying or planting worms or viruses and is often divided two distinct categories: those that cause intentional damage and those that cause unintentional damage. Either way, in most cases cybercrime causes financial damage.
In todays cyber world Data theft is one of the most common types of cybercrime. Companies have an obligation to protect not only their own data , but that of their customers. The loss of customer data not only damages a companies reputation but can also causes collateral financial damage due to both lost employee time and whatever money the company has to spend to fix the problem.
Cybercrime is BIG BUSINESS! If Cybercrime were a country it would have the 15th highest GDP in the world worth over 1.5 Trillion dollars annually!
