Cybercrime Victimisation Barometer

The rapidly evolving cyber threat landscape has made cybercrime a top security concern for the European Union and its Member States. As their online presence grows, European businesses increasingly become targets of ransomware, malware, Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks, phishing, Business Email Compromise (BEC) and cryptojacking.

The aim of the Cybercrime Victimisation Barometer (CYBBAR) is to improve the understanding of cybercrime and its extent and to facilitate cooperation between law enforcement agencies and businesses in reducing underreporting of cybercrime. In the long term, the outcomes of CYBBAR are expected to support the detection, investigation, and prevention of cybercrime in the EU.
