The most reported crime in the world right now is cyber crime and online fraud. This blog article explains the risks to businesses and provides a way in which you can help protect your business.
One in ten people now fall prey to internet fraudsters and over 5 million cases are reported to the authorities ever year, cyber criminals are very real predators that can have a devastating effect on everyone’s lives and businesses.
These figures are also the tip of the iceberg as many more cyber crimes are believed to go unreported because victims and / or business owners feel too embarrassed to let on that they have been duped by a stranger sitting behind a keyboard.
The digital age comes with lots of well documented pros and cons. We can now work from anywhere in the world and stay constantly connected, but that has a knock-on effect on our personal lives, and businesses.
Cyber-crime costs billions of dollars every year. That is an obscene amount of money by anyone’s standards. The really scary thing about this is that data theft is now relatively easy for anyone to get involved in.
Gone are the days of the old movies, where computer hackers were dark, mysterious and possessed savant–like levels of expertise. Today anyone with the inclination and $50 or less can purchase software and scripts that will enable them to hack into your computer systems and wreak havoc.
The best way to be 100% sure a hacker can not break into your business is to not use computers in the first place but we all know that is not possible. Just having antivirus software on each computer is not enough and you need multi layers of security incorporating next-generation software and hardware!
