Abstract: By all accounts, the global cybercrime industry is significantly bigger than most of the major and well-known underground and underworld industries. The most often cited figure for the annual worldwide loss to cybercrime is US$1 trillion (Kshetri, 2013a). This is significantly bigger than the illegal drug industry and the human trafficking industry. According to the 2011 Norton Cybercrime Report released by Symantec, 69% of the world's internet users have been victimized at some points in their lives by cybercriminals.
