Today, we will look at English ONS statistics showing cybercrime overtaking the traditional, device plans capable of detecting mobile tracking, the vulnerability of Apple systems and much more.
The National Crime Agency (NCA) has seen an important milestone. According to the Cyber Crime Assessment 2016, more cybercrime was reported in 2015 than traditional (47%). It is not clear how are the other countries suffering from cybercrime, because in many of them computer crime is not as well recorded as in the UK. The Office of National Statistics (ONS) has begun to report cybercrime in 2015, with an estimated 2.46 million incidents.
There are, among other things, criminal teams targeting banks in the UK, which paradoxically have more security demands (tokens, OTPs) than those in America. Criminal teams using bankers such as Dridex and Dyre attack your computer with which you access internet banking and use false forms of banking to use, changing the target account and amount in the background, and then hiding this unauthorized payment from your account statement. Banks in England are very familiar with these malware, so they are targeting the English people to make full use of their potential.
Under the European Union General Data Protection Regulation, which will enter into force on May 25, 2018, companies doing business in the European Union even have to report basically every successful attack.
The report should open the eyes to the security forces to prepare for this trend. There will be a need for cyber crime teams, which should have sufficient knowledge of the issues and information technologies to effectively help victims of cybercrime.
