According to data by, the annual cost of cybercrime is set to rise to an eyewatering figure by 2028.

As we have already seen a prediction that cybercrime costs will cost an average of one trillion more than last year, and it’s expected to further jump an additional 70% in the next four years by USD$13.8 trillion.

According to the Allianz Risk Barometer survey, 40% of those polled stated that cybercrime was their biggest potential threat in 2023.

The Statista Market Insights survey, between 2018 and 2020, also found that the global cybercrime cost rose by 245%, from $860 billion to $2.95 trillion.

As digitalisation continues to gain traction among global organisations, the risk to their cyber security is mounting.
