The advancement of technology has made society dependent on the internet for many critical services as well as social engagement. However, misuse of this technology for various disruptive as well as criminal activities has given rise to cyber-crimes. Today, the perpetrators of cybercrimes are sans borders and the victims could be any body, from common man to private enterprise to government organizations. Cyber-crime has also emerged as a National security threat. Hence, it is essential that coordinated efforts should be made for prevention of cyber-crimes and publishing of this reference handbook is one important step in that direction.

I am sure that this reference handbook will reach the right people in an effort to improve the cyber security both at the National as well as international level. I wish National Cyber Safety and Security Standards all the best in bringing out this handbook

Cyber Crime is the fastest growing threat to humanity. As the number of data networks, digital applications, as well as internet and mobile users are growing, so do the chances of cyber exploitation and cyber crimes. Even a small mistake in securing data or bad social networking can prove to be extremely dangerous.

National Cyber Safety and Security Standards (NCSSS) has done an extensive research in the Cyber domain to understand the nature of cyber threats and Cyber Crimes and that the multi-faceted cyber technology cannot be handled by common standards and security policies. I extend my best wishes to the Editorial Team of the NCSSS.
