The Fight Against Cyber Crime

Personal cyber security is, in fact, a major concern for people living around the world. The number of Cyberattacks worldwide is growing, and hackers are causing more damage. Why is cybersecurity so important? To some people the answer to that question is self-explanatory. Others are still asking that question to this day.

 

Cybersecurity is something that everyone needs to be aware of. All investors, company CEOs, and people with personal computers should be aware of the damages associated with cyber attacks. In 2017, there has been an increase in personal cyber security attacks across the globe. Back in May, there was an attack on hundreds of thousands of computers in 150 different countries. Millions of dollars worth of valuables were stolen. This was one of the largest cyber attacks ever recorded.

 

The average computer user may ask themselves, why should I care? What do I have to lose? If a hacker can successfully take control of your computer, then everything is at risk. That includes social security information, bank data, location information, passwords, and much more. Hacker technology is becoming more powerful, and those people that do not know how to protect themselves are at risk of losing personal information.

 

Between 2013-2015, the number of cyber attacks around the world was 4X as powerful as they were in the past. During those two years, government agencies had to pay between $400-500 million to fight back against personal cyber crime. Cybersecurity Ventures predicts that the number could job into the trillions of dollars to repay the damages of stolen property, personal information, and financial data. The number of threats towards medical devices is increasing every year.

 

In May 2017, Donald Trump signed an executive order to help protect the United States from cyber attacks.
