"The Internet and its communications capability is the nervous system of any nation's critical infrastructures, and is therefore extremely critical in maintaining economic productivity. Because of the economic importance that is associated with the Internet and its communications capabilities, criminals and sometimes a company's own employees are looking for ways to exploit it for their own financial gain or to support a cause. The use of technology to facilitate the commission of crimes or abuse of company computing resources is increasing".
