Yes, YOU Actually Are A Target For Cyber Criminals! [PDF]

Why You Are Targeted
Crimes such as fraud, identity theft or extortion have existed for as long as there have been civilizations, they are a part of our daily lives.

 

A criminal’s goal has always been the same: to make as much money as possible, as easily as possible, and with as little risk as possible.

 

Traditionally, this was difficult because criminals were often limited by their location and had to physically interact with their intended victims.

 

This not only limited whom criminals could target, but also exposed criminals to a great deal of risk. However, crime has radically changed
