Hacking, malware and cybercrime are all developing at alarming rates. According to top technical experts’ estimates, global cybercrime resulted in $3 trillion worth of damages in 2015 and is predicted to top $6 trillion annually by 2021. If these numbers are correct, cybercrime is poised to be responsible for the largest transfer of wealth in the history of economics.
If you’re reading this, you’re clearly already concerned about your business’s network security. It’s a step in the right direction — but what active steps can you take given the overwhelming statistics just mentioned? The answer lies in preparedness.
According to the FBI — which takes the lead in investigating cybercrimes committed against American individuals and companies, as well as our nation — what used to be troublesome forms of malware aiming to hold personal and/or business data hostage for a ransom have now morphed into more severe and targeted attacks. They instead look to steal and exploit intellectual property and other forms of sensitive information.
This means small businesses — like those in manufacturing, biotech, logistics and other sectors — are no longer immune to cybercriminals’ attacks. The FBI also warns that given the nature of the dark web to act as a quick and easy way to sell ill-acquired data, businesses need to implement network security measures that are vigilant, ongoing and regularly assessed for their effectiveness.
