With all the media reports of cyber attacks these days you might be wondering who is behind it all, and how they do it. And that's a good question!
There are so many different groups of people carrying out hacks, and all with different motives. These could be bored teenagers, activist groups and organised crime gangs, or even nation states and governments. There really is no single group responsible.
We've created a whole section on this topic to shed some light on those people responsible, why they do it, and some of how they manage to do what they do. It's a fascinating topic in itself, but by knowing a bit more about how cybercrime is committed you'll also gain a better understanding of the reasoning behind much of the advice given out here on BeCyberSafe.com.
