What is a cyberattack?

A cyberattack is a criminal act against an individual or organisation via their computer system or network. The attack is often instigated by a virus like a botnet, that compromises the network security.

The aim of a cyberattack is often to cause disruption or denial of service, but it can also be used to steal personal data.
