Tech Age Gives Rise to Cybercrime
The Ponemon Institute, an information security research center, compiled a report released by Hewlett Packard in October 2012, suggesting that last year marked the third consecutive year of cybercrime increasing in both cost and frequency.
CSP released an article today titled, "Tech Age Gives Rise to Cybercrime,"
"Big corporations and businesses aren’t the only ones who can fall victim to cyberattacks. Individuals with an online presence are just as likely to be targeted by hackers and cybercriminals. The 2011 Norton Cybercrime Report found that 69 percent of adults with an online presence have fallen victim to cybercrime during their lifetime. More than 1 million people are victimized by cybercrime every day, equating to 14 adults every second. The report also found that the rate of mobile attacks is dramatically increasing, as hackers opt for this vulnerable cyberspace when looking for easy targets," states CSP.
