“It is estimated that as much as 90% of computer crime is unreported because businesses do not wish to make known the vulnerability it extends to customers, suppliers, and stockholders. A major concern is the threat of intrusion by employees, competitors, and others. The concern is that individuals may gain access to computer facilities, systems, software, and data to commit a variety of computer crimes, such as stealing data; damaging or vandalizing hardware, software, or data; using computer software illegally; or committing fraud.”
