Cyber Legal & Crime

Kaspersky's comments come at a time when Interpol, the European Union's primary law enforcement agency is warning of a relentless growth in these types of crimes. In a report published in September, Interpol experts noted that cybercrime is growing at a rate never seen before and that some of the states in the European Union say it is exceeding the growth rate of traditional crimes and can even infect your laptop and digital devices when using public wi fi networks which have been traditionally safe for public users.

According to Kaspersky, the recent attack by Wannacry demonstrates how vulnerable the world's IT systems and security are and she warned that it will get worse.
