Earlier this year, the Norton Cybercrime Report claimed that 1.5 million people became a victim to cybercrime in the UAE in the past twelve months, costing the country millions of dollars in direct financial losses.
In 2012, 46% of social networking users in the country witnessed cybercrime on social media networking platforms.
“In 2013, we foresee a steady rise in targeted attacks towards governments, companies and individuals with financial and political motivation,” said Justin Doo from Symantec.
“In addition to traditional cybercrime, the UAE’s high number of mobile devices per person creates a new avenue for increasingly sophisticated incidents,” he said.
