Cybercrime is on the rise…

For the first time in history, financial losses from cybercrime surpassed home burglaries, according to the FBI’s Preliminary 2020 Crime Report.

The scary part?

These aren’t just individual hackers sitting in mom’s basement – they are sophisticated criminal enterprises with big budgets and some of the smartest engineers in the world.

The issue is, while digital criminals are getting better at what they do, we as consumers live in apathy about the risks.

This quote from Hari Ravichandran, the CEO of Aura, a digital security company, sums it up perfectly; “Today, there is no differentiation between your digital life and real life. And, while well-financed criminal enterprises have replaced individual hackers, the tools available to protect ourselves have not changed since we were working on desktop computers with dial-up modems.”

Aura also conducted a survey on the topic, which found that 68% of people still use public wi-fi and have the same password for multiple accounts. And almost 40% won’t change their online behaviors because it’s too “time-consuming” or they don’t know how to.

So, the real question is, are YOU protecting yourself online? Or are you one of the many people risking your digital safety with lethargy?

Let’s take a look at the key areas of digital safety you need to be aware of.
