Apr. 25, 2023, Canada – In 2022, 156 out of 1 million internet users in Canada were hit by cybercrime, which places Canada third in the world by cybercrime density, a recent study by Surfshark’s shows.

“Last year, 801k people fell victim to cybercrime worldwide, resulting in a total of ten billion dollars in losses. Because of how lucrative cybercrime is, there’s no reason to think cybercriminals will stop striking anytime soon. That’s why it’s more important than ever to be vigilant and build up your cybersecurity defenses, which goes for businesses and individuals alike,” says Gabriele Racaityte-Krasauske, Surfshark.
