So many billions of dollars are lost due to various cyber security breaches! The internet has made it possible for all kinds of data, such as Financial data, biologic data, personal data and health data to give few examples.
Once hacking takes place , the consequences could be devastating to individuals, companies, corporations and even governments.
There is so much ( identity theft) that is going around, with fake deals and offers online for jobs in firms, hospitals, unbelievable offers for business finance which all sound too good to be true! This will hopefully make you suspicious and as clock work , you try to do your due diligence and check out these entities that disappear immediately , their website becomes inactive and their phone numbers will have a recording ( you have reached a non working number which is no longer in service).
Lucky, before your financial data is released to someone who would take you to the cleaners as it would be very difficult to recover what was stolen!
So, be vigilant and be aware of these tricks,none of the promised treats as we approach ( Halloween). So education, taking precautions and apply appropriate firewalls and report incidents before someone else becomes the next victim.
So, cooperation among individuals, nations, with teamwork between public and private sectors is required and very badly needed locally and globally to avoid crippling systems crashing and shut down.
