Norton cybercrime report 2012

Norton by Symantec (NASDAQ:SYMC) today released the findings of its annual Norton Cybercrime Report, one of the world’s largest consumer cybercrime studies. The study is aimed at understanding how cybercrime affects consumers, and how the adoption and evolution of new technologies impacts people’s security. With findings based on self-reported experiences of more than 13,000 adults across 24 countries, the 2012 edition of the Norton Cybercrime Report calculates the direct costs1 associated with global consumer cybercrime at US $110 billion2 over the past twelve months.
Every second, 18 adults become a victim of cybercrime3, resulting in more than one-and-a-half million cybercrime victims each day on a global level. With losses totaling an average of US $197 per victim across the world in direct financial costs4, cybercrime costs consumers more than a week’s worth of nutritious food necessities for a family of four5. In the past twelve months, an estimated 556 million6 adults across the world experienced cybercrime, more than the entire population of the European Union.7 This figure represents 46 percent of online adults who have been victims of cybercrime in the past twelve months, on par with the findings from 2011 (45 percent).
