In this paper, media reporting of cybercrime victims (with a specific focus on organisations) was examined. For this purpose, data were collected from media outlets in the UK and UAE. A basic premise of this paper is that media has the ability to restrict readers to either ‘opposing’ or ‘favouring’ views about the subject of the news. Research findings demonstrated that victim organisations were mostly shaped within a negative media frame in a given time period. Comparative analysis between UK and UAE news media showed the usage of similar language in portraying victim organisations.
