No matter the type of business you run, if you use the Internet, you’re at risk for a cyber attack, cyber criminals target financial websites with the hopes of collecting enough information to gain access to personal accounts.
Cyber criminals will go to extraordinary lengths to steal your bank account number, your password, your login information or your credit card information directly from you.
As with anything you do online, any time you provide details like your email address, shipping address, phone number and credit card information, your information becomes prey for cyber criminals.
Information once posted on the internet cannot be taken back as it is remains in servers, websites and search engines with the amount of personal information you put on the internet i.e. blogs and personal Web pages since that is where cyber criminals fish for information to perform activities such as identify theft.
Risks to mobile phones, especially Smart phones and Bluetooth-enabled phones, are becoming increasingly common. Aside from the actual physical loss of your mobile phone, which could put personal information in the wrong hands, there are several ways your mobile phone can be compromised.
