According to EWeek (2012) a survey of large companies found an average expenditure of $8.9 million per year on cyber security, with 100 percent of firms surveyed reporting at least one malware incident in the preceding 12 months and 71 percent reporting the hijacking of company computers
Ransomware is a very serious issue all around the world and every year people and companies pay millions of dollars to hackers. Having an effective policy to minimize the risk of an attack is critical for big companies, especially hospitals.

Crackers call what they do for a living ‘sharing information’. They are just leeches who take other people's property without consent, criminals lurking on the internet.

Introduction - In October 2012 Kaspersky Labs received a suspicious executable file from a partner which led to them conducting an investigation and uncovering thousands of different e-mails with similar ‘Rocra’ attachments sent around the world.

Crimes committed through or with a computer may include fraud, offensive content, harassment and hate groups, drug trafficking, and cyberterrorism.

Police departments also need forensic data analysts on hand to find and recover evidence which may be on a suspect's computer and may have been encrypted or deleted. In the future, a special department may be created within the criminal justice system to deal with this special category, as currently many police departments have to outsource their computer-related

Around 63% of all the child sex slaves where were sold on the internet as 2010. Sex slavery is not the only thing, but child slavery as well.
