The digital transformation connects governments, citizens and businesses worldwide. This ‘hyper-connected world’ has no physical boundaries, distances are not constrained. Ultimately, the big, wide world becomes a ‘global village’. This development offers unique opportunities but also challenges that we can no longer ignore. The global village is not only populated by friendly neighbours. We should identify and arm ourselves against the new potential vulnerabilities caused by this connected world.
As a result of the digitization trend in society we observe a movement from traditional to digital crime, or cybercrime.
The development of the Internet and the new way of doing business also leads to a better development of criminal organizations. Any individual or organization, large or small, could face cybercrime at any time in the form of vandalism, espionage, theft, fraud and sabotage. All terms that we already know from the past.
Cybercrime prevention is always better than troubleshooting afterwards. Of course, a preventive system hardly shows which types of cybercrime have been restrained or prevented. A secured system could be compared with an insurance. Hopefully, you will never need it, but if you do it is inevitable and you depend upon it.
Do not leave your IT systems to chance and make sure that your organization is well protected against cybercrime. The consequences of a break-in often have a major impact on an organization. Furthermore, from now on businesses are obliged to report any offenses. And the laws and rules will continue to be strengthened in the near future, consequently security is really a matter of course.
In the early days of the Internet mainly large organizations and the public sector were target of cyberattacks and hacks, but this is increasingly changing. Currently anyone can be a target, because even an individual or small organization holds interesting data. With this data criminals attempt to access for example payment systems. New offences of cybercrime can be discovered daily at any news website.
Cybercrime encompasses all forms of crime on the Internet. This ranges from the distribution of computer viruses to the abuse of personal data. Cybercrime is not always visible; some malware is installed on a computer without being visible. This allows data leaks towards the internet. By applying security to the bottom network layer, such offences can be prevented.
