Cybercrime damage is expected to hit $6 trillion per year by 2021. This represents the greatest transfer of economic wealth in history.
The cybersecurity threat landscape has been on an upward swing for the last decade and that trend is expected to continue exponentially.
Cybercrime exists because it pays, and it pays very well – enough to fund an ever escalating cycle of investment into new technologies, techniques and ways to circumvent existing cybersecurity.
One of the reasons cybercrime pays is that it’s nearly impossible to prosecute the perpetrators who work in digital shadows, often from other countries. This includes nation state actors, cybercriminals working directly or indirectly for their governments where they launch very sophisticated cyberattacks on government agencies, organizations, corporations, small and large businesses and individuals.
To make matters worse, there’s a new group of cyber attackers who know nothing at all about technology. Instead they buy cyber hacking software from “the deep web” and simply follow instructions.
Perhaps the most frightening aspect of all this is the sheer volume of attacks now being waged against anyone with a computer or smartphone. According to Cybint News, there is a hacker attack every 39 seconds, affecting one in three Americans annually. Every hour, there are 158,727 records stolen from breaches.
A few years ago, a report that appeared in USA Today shocked many by claiming that the U.S. electric grid alone faced online attacks about 100 times a year.
The one common denominator in 90 percent of all cybercrimes is this: Cybercriminals rely on human error to launch their attack. Opening or forwarding email attachments from strangers, clicking on advertisements, creating unimaginative passwords and using company computers for personal use are all portals of opportunity for disastrous scenarios for a business.
Obviously, cybersecurity training has become an essential employment condition so that employees understand how minor mistakes or simple oversights might lead to a very bad situation regarding the security or bottom line of their company.
