Cops Say Crooks Are Winning The 'Cyber Arms Race'

We all know this is true, I just don't understand why. Governments around the world should be able to recruit the best talent on the planet but they just aren't doing it. It's humiliating to think that most of the "cyber crooks" out there are script kiddies that couldn't hack their way out of a paper bag but they still wreak havoc online.

Police and businesses are losing the 'cyber arms race' with criminals who are getting increasingly sophisticated, the UK's National Crime Agency (NCA) has warned. In its first Cyber Crime Assessment report the agency warned: "The accelerating pace of technology and criminal cyber capability development currently outpaces the UK's collective response to cyber crime. This 'cyber arms race' is likely to be an enduring challenge."
