You should educate your staff about phishing and malware scams to steal intellectual property or personal data.

For example, multiple high-profile Twitter accounts were compromised in July 2020, which was one of the most brazen cyber-attacks of recent times. Barack Obama, Joe Biden and Bill Gates were among the accounts which apparently had been hacked to promote a scam asking users to transfer Bitcoin in order to get twice the original amount back. According to Blockchair data quoted by the New York Times, Bitcoin worth $118,000 had been transferred to the dubious account.


Increased Cyber Security Threats - Information theft is one of the most expensive and fastest-growing segments in cybercrime.
