Cybercrime is a global threat, but it’s even more important in the United States, where it’s become a major business opportunity for criminals.
Cyberattacks are a particularly lucrative part of this lucrative business, as there are tens of billions of dollars in cybercrime money.
It’s estimated that nearly $300 billion in cyber-attacks were made last year, according to the FBI, making it the second largest crime after narcotics.
The US government has identified more than 500 cybercriminals in the past five years.
But it’s hard to quantify how much of this money is actually being spent on cybercrime.
“There’s not much data that we have,” said David A. Mankiewicz, director of the University of Chicago’s Cybercrime Research Lab.
“It’s a murky space.”
One way to estimate how much cybercriminally made is by taking a look at the amount of money stolen from banks and credit card companies.
The FBI estimates that between 2013 and 2015, hackers stole $16.5 billion from banks.
That means that the average American was robbed out of nearly $200,000 over the course of five years, and that figure only reflects a fraction of the total cybercrime that happened.
“That’s a big chunk of the money,” Mankiewitz told Ars.
“We know from the industry that criminals get a good return on investment.
That’s why banks are looking at it as a threat, not as an opportunity.”
A cyberattack that takes out a bank is a relatively small operation, but there are many smaller cyberattacks, such as a phishing campaign or the leaking of personal data.
There are a number of reasons for this: cybercrims don’t want to go public with their information.
And there are other ways for criminals to gain access to an account, like using an exploit.
But for now, there is little to be done to track these types of crimes, even though the government has spent billions of taxpayer dollars tracking these types.
Manksiewicz said there are three main ways to estimate cybercrime in the US: the amount stolen from financial institutions, the number of cyberattacks made in the same timeframe, and the total amount of cybercrime made.
The government doesn’t have a specific methodology to track cybercrime, but Mankiwitz said the best way to get an idea of what’s happening is to look at financial institutions.
“The best way for us to look is by comparing our own data with those of other countries,” he said.
“If there’s something that’s different between countries, we can say, ‘What’s going on there?’
If the answer is we have a higher rate of cyber-crime, we should also have a greater percentage of the overall cybercrime.”
The data collected by the FBI and banks The FBI is currently tracking a $10.6 billion data collection program called the Cyber Threat Intelligence Integration Network, or CTRIN, which collects information on cyberattacks that have taken place in the last five years and how they were carried out.
CTRIN is a joint effort between the FBI’s National Security Division, the National Cybersecurity and Communications Integration Center, and private companies.
Each agency has a different method for collecting data on cyberattack activity, but the data collected is generally similar.
For example, CTRIN collects information about the date, time, and type of the attack, but not the person or organization behind it.
According to CTRIN data, hackers who carried out the biggest cyberattacks in the previous five years took out $5.9 billion in losses, while the other four categories were $1.7 billion, $0.7 million, $2.6 million, and $3.6 a day.
This information helps determine how much money was made, but a lack of transparency about the data collection method could make it difficult to compare cybercrime data.
The data also provides a snapshot of the cybercrime industry.
The average number of victims for each cyberattack is recorded in CTRIN.
This shows how much revenue was made from the attacks, the amount lost, and how many victims the cyberattack generated.
However, it also indicates the amount that the attack actually caused.
CTRINS data does not include data from bank card networks, which are used by companies to collect data on consumers who use their accounts.
This data is not publicly available, and is not being collected by CTRIN but by banks, credit card processors, and other companies that collect information on bank accounts.
According the FBI report, the average number for bank card fraud was $9,400 in the first quarter of 2015.
This represents a 20 percent increase from the same period a year earlier.
The same trend is seen in the total number of losses: the number rose by only 9 percent to $3,200.
These numbers are important because they can help understand how much the cybercriminal economy is growing, and whether it’s growing faster than the
