This page provides statistics, facts and market data related to cyber crime. This includes information on segments such as fraud, hacking, cyber bullying and electronic harassment, cyber warfare as well as statistics on demographics.
Cyber crime or computer crime can be divided into two categories: the first comprises crimes that target computers directly such as viruses, attacks and malware; the second focuses on online crime that uses computer networks or devices as means to perform fraud and identity theft through social engineering as well as cyber bullying, cyber stalking and cyber warfare.
Data breaches and their consequences have also had profound effects on consumers with personal information and credit details being stolen. The biggest online data breach compromised more than 130 million user accounts. Online brands with the highest chance of being targeted by phishing attacks include online payment provider Paypal and online auction house eBay, as well as numerous online service providers that require personal identification as well as payment information.
With the ubiquity of the internet, an increased online usage and the spread of social network usage throughout all age groups, cyber bullying and cyber stalking have become increasingly common, especially among teenagers. Cyber bullying is defined as the harming or harassing of other people in a deliberate, repeated, and hostile manner, including cyber dating abuse within relationships.
