I deleted the sentence 'For a law-abiding private individual the threat comes almost exclusively from criminals.'  as it is not correct. For instance the Investigatory Powers Tribunal has decided that we were all under unlawful mass surveillance until Dec 2014. It then became lawful as some guidelines were published, but clearly law abiding individuals are under surveillance threat by non-criminals.
