Fraud and cybersecurity are huge issues with all online activity, and online games are no exception. Game companies have faced many well-known fraud and cybersecurity issues. Some of these matters have resulted in lawsuits and even criminal prosecution. Aside from the legal consequences, fraud and security incidents can have a devastating impact on a game company's business.
