According to the latest Symantec cyber security report the UK was the most popular destination for hackers in 2014. Almost five in six large companies were under some kind of a cyber-attack, this way or another. So, what is this supposed to mean? What should we think about this particular information?
Well, this is a painful increase of more than 40% compared to 2013. Yet again, you simply cannot avoid asking a simple question. How can this be? Who is to blame for this embarrassing negative result? Believe it or not, we are ourselves the worst cyber enemies in the entire virtual universe. How?
It is quite simple, actually. This may come as a huge surprise, but it turns out that the hackers themselves are extremely lazy and profit oriented cyber-creatures. That means they would rather allow their malicious automatized systems to do all the dirty work. They are counting on you, for real.
The absolute majority of all cyber attacks and successful phishing schemes came from the surprisingly naive malicious emails. Unfortunately, the average business UK users were even more naive. Before you know it the entire business structure was infected and compromised. Enough said, isn’t it?
