Cybercrime is a growing concern for corporations. Hackers can steal confidential information from a company or even take control of their website to commit fraud and other crimes. These incidents can affect customers and the reputation of a company.

For individuals, it can result in the theft of personal data and credit card numbers. Criminals may use the stolen information to make fraudulent purchases online or may open new credit cards in your name that can have serious consequences for you and your family in the future.

Criminals have a huge bag of tricks they can pull out to get what they want, from ransomware to keyloggers to distributed denial-of-service attacks (DDoS). They often target people with an axe to grind, whether it’s the disgruntled ex-employee that’s extorting a big ransom or someone who’s been bullied or stalked on social media. They can even use smartphone-attached spyware to track politicians, government leaders, and human rights activists.

The good news is that the technology to fight these crimes is constantly evolving and improving. In the past, cyber security teams were limited in what they could do to combat these criminals. However, in recent years, they have evolved into a thriving industry with sophisticated tools and products that allow them to protect against a growing number of threats.
