Challenges and Vulnerabilities of Analysing Cybercrime Costs

Abstract

Recent studies have underlined a limited scope of research published with regard to the impact of cybercrimes, which is investigated by applying the scientific literature analysis and surveys. This paper focuses on in-depth research on cybercrime costs by analysing the information from selected online materials in order to reveal a research gap. To support the contributions of the research in the field, two methods, namely, literature review and statistical analysis were employed. The findings reveal that several interested parties such as independent IT companies, governmental and non-governmental institutions have conducted various surveys to identify the impact of cyberattacks. The main challenges and vulnerabilities of analysing cybercrime costs can be overcome by further investigations.
