Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT IS THE NORTON CYBERCRIME INDEX?
The Norton Cybercrime Index is a free tool, available to everyone, which measures and warns people about cybercrime risks around the world, and how it can affect them. The Norton Cybercrime Index's number changes daily to reflect real cybercrime risk and the relative threat that this poses to people. The Norton Cybercrime Index's Daily Cybercrime News alert indicates the day's top cybercrime threat, and tells people what they can do to avoid it.
WHY HAS NORTON CREATED THE CYBERCRIME INDEX?
We created the Norton Cybercrime Index to show people that cybercrime is real, it can happen to anybody, and that there is something you can do to protect yourself. In fact, 65% of adults worldwide have already been victims of cybercrime. As an industry leader in Internet Security, it is our duty to raise awareness of the issue and provide advice and tools to keep people safe. Cybercrime is avoidable, and the Norton Cybercrime index will provide advice on how to help Internet users safely navigate the Web.
HOW DOES THE NORTON CYBERCRIME INDEX FUNCTION?
The Norton Cybercrime Index functions much like the Dow Jones crossed with an online traffic report - providing people with an unprecedented, holistic look at the current state of online threats. It calculates attacks both quantitatively and qualitatively, and provides an easy-to-understand and visually compelling representation of the cybercrime risk-level people face, helping them to know on a daily basis if more diligence and safety measures are required when going online on any given day. Moreover, it provides on-going Daily Cybercrime News alerts and permanent tracking to show trends and changes over time.
WHERE CAN I EXPERIENCE THE NORTON CYBERCRIME INDEX?
- The Norton Cybercrime Index can be experienced in four ways:
- Viewed on the Internet www.nortoncybercrimeindex.com

WHERE DOES THE NORTON CYBERCRIME INDEX DATA COME FROM?
The data used to populate the Norton Cybercrime Index comes from three primary sources:
Symantec's Global Intelligence Network, ID Analytics and DataLossDB.
The majority of the Norton Cybercrime Index's data comes from the Symantec Global Intelligence Network, one of the Industry';s most comprehensive sources of intelligence about online threats. The Symantec Global Intelligence Network:
- Monitors 133 Million servers around the world, providing malware detection
- Has 240,000 sensors in more than 200 countries, providing details of cyber activity
- Incorporates 80,000 technologies, providing vulnerability detection
- Monitors eight billion email messages a day, providing spam and phising exposure
In addition, Norton has partnered with ID analytics and DataLossDB, allowing for an even greater, holistic look at cybercrime.
ID analytics provides US data regarding personal identity fraud. Some of the largest U.S. companies and critical government agencies rely on ID Analytics to make risk-based decisions that protect people. http://www.idanalytics.com
DataLossDB is a research project from the Open Security Foundation and their volunteers, aimed at documenting known and reported data loss incidents worldwide. http://www.datalossdb.org
