As well, new variants of malware have been identified, malicious files have increased, and cloud tools have become weapons for cybercriminals. Why is cybercrime increasing? There are a number of reasons that are swirling to create a perfect storm for cybercriminals, whose tactics are getting both more refined and more aggressive.
