Cyber crime statistics around the world are frightening.
Cyber crime was the second most reported economic crime in the Global Economic Crime Survey 2016 from PwC affecting 32% of organizations.
A recent crime survey in the U.K. showed that cyber crime offences have increased 8%. Online fraud is a huge issue, and fraud has far surpassed burglary and theft as the highest volume crime.
According to a securityintelligence.com post, the global cost of cyber crime will reach $2 trillion by 2019, which is three times the 2015 estimate of $500 billion.
But while you often hear that all types and sizes of workplaces and businesses are being attacked, cyber crime trends show that fraudsters are increasingly targeting people directly, according to Katy Worobec of Financial Fraud Action UK. So while it’s important to invest in computer software and other safeguarding systems to stop criminals, the workplace must also recognize that people are the first line of defense.
Physical documents also run the risk of being breached by a malicious insider. A Clean Desk Policy is one of the simplest and most effective ways to protect confidential information in the workplace.
