Cybercrime is a term that encompasses any criminal activity involving the use of digital technology or communication, such as the internet, computers, or smartphones. In most cases, these crimes are financially driven but attacks may also be politically or personally motivated. Cybercrime can include a wide range of activities, such as fraud, theft, cyberstalking, ransomware, malware distribution, and so many others.

Combating cybercrime is a highly complex and ever-evolving challenge due to the dynamic nature of the threat landscape.  And understanding the threat landscape requires in-depth threat intelligence on the identity of cybercriminals, their preferred attack techniques, their motives, operational tactics, their areas of focus, and more.
