The growth of the internet has impacted profoundly on everyday life and the global economy.
Although providing opportunities, the internet also poses new and growing threats. As the internet is borderless and nobody polices it, legitimate users of the internet are vulnerable to attack.
The growth of use of the internet has led to unprecedented levels of computer related crime with cyber crime now acknowledged as not only a national issue but an international issue. The UK government has recently ranked cybercrime as the foremost threat to national security and it is stated that sponsored attacks to the UK could threaten the UK socio / political infrastructure.
Cybercrimes are wide ranging from ‘malware' and 'phishing' applications used to record key strokes or obtain passwords and bank details, to other forms of hacking for the purposes of corporate espionage.
