Cyber crime on the rise in Canada

According to a recent survey commissioned by the Canadian Association of Police Boards, cyber crime is quickly becoming that country’s top crime.  In a release issued by the CAPB, an official with the organization said that the average Canadian citizen is “now more likely to be the victim of a crime through the Internet than on the street or in their home.”

ยท 86 percent of respondents indicate that cyber crime has become a concern.

To help stem the tide, the survey recommends that a national cyber crime center be established where law enforcement and other agencies can work together to combat the problem.
