The UK is being "too complacent" about online criminal activity because the victims are hidden in cyberspace, the chair of the Home Affairs Select Committee said today, after it issued a warning that the country was "losing the war on internet crime".
Labour MP Keith Vaz said:
The threat of a cyber attack to the UK is so serious it is marked as a higher threat than a nuclear attack.
You can steal more on the internet than you can by robbing a bank and online criminals in 25 countries have chosen the UK as their number one target. Astonishingly, some are operating from EU countries.
If we don't have a 21st century response to this 21st century crime, we will be letting those involved in these gangs off the hook.
