These figures show cybercrime is a much bigger menace than anyone thought before

Cybercrime rates are much higher than previously estimated, with new figures from the Office for National Statistics, the UK’s official producer of national statistics, suggesting that one in 10 adults have been a victim of crimes such as hacking or cyber fraud — a significant rise over previous estimates.

The Crime Survey for England and Wales (CSEW) represents the first official estimate of the extent of cybercrime incidents such as online scams, malware or virus attacks, theft of banking or other personal data, and other online crimes. [1]
