Executive summary

As public and private sector organisations continue to move into cyberspace, so do criminals. Cyber-crime, which is the collective term for criminal activities carried out by means of a computer or the Internet, has become increasingly sophisticated, making it difficult to detect and combat.

Most confirmed cases of data loss are perpetrated by outsiders, generally by organised crime groups or state-affiliated groups. 

Nowadays, cyber-crime cases appear in newspaper headlines on a regular basis, showing the extent and the ever-evolving nature of the cyber criminality landscape.
