Number of cybercrime offenses in the Netherlands 2012-2019

In 2019, roughly 22 out of 100 Dutch individuals fell victim to a cybercrime offense. The most common cybercrime in the Netherlands was hacking, with 8 out of 100 individuals stating that either their online profile, computer or e-mail account was hacked in 2019.

Some concerns in the Netherlands about online banking cybercrimes

Despite a large number of Dutch respondents stating they had never experienced online banking or payment card fraud, concerns did exist about this topic. Over half of respondents from the Netherlands were either fairly or very concerned about this type of cybercrime. Compared to European respondents, though, the Dutch were less worried about this topic.

More concerns about foreign cyber-attacks

According to recent surveys, Dutch respondents believed that foreign cyber-attacks were a bigger threat in 2018 than it was in 2016. This increase in the perceived threat of cyber-attacks from other countries came a few months after the Dutch Military Intelligence and Security Service or MIVD announced in October 2018 that it had prevented a foreign hack of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) in The Hague during the previous summer.
