Managing Cybercrimes through the Implementation of Security Measures

Abstract:

Today’s global environment has seen tremendous growth in the number of online transactions and Internet subscribers. This increase is creating a situation in which businesses are now largely dependent on information systems and their inherent technologies. The increase, however, is also causing a rise in the volume and extent of cybercrimes and security lapses. Hence, countries, organisations, and individuals are regularly being faced with the challenge of protecting their privacy and integrity over the Internet. This study was conducted to identify effective security measures for managing cybercrimes and protecting organisations’ information and information systems from cyber-related crimes.
