In today’s scenario, one of the emerging situations of concern is cyber-crime. Cyber criminals are opting for sophisticated attack methodologies that are more difficult to be detected. On an average, cost of cyber-crimes has been estimated to be around $600 billion globally. According to Cyber security Ventures:
- The number of internet users will be around 6 billion by the year 2022.
- For a period of five years from 2017-2021, this number will exceed by $ 1 trillion
- By 2021, cyber-crimes will cost $6 trillion annually.
- Global damages due to ransomware attacks will cost around $20 billion by 2021.
- It has been proven that 90% of all the successful email attacks are caused by Phishing.
This is extremely concerning since these statistics will only change for worse. Every day the number of reported cyber-crimes are increasing. This is where ThreatCop comes in handy.
