Annual Global Fraud Survey Yields No Surprises For Kaspersky

Kaspersky Lab UK : 19 October, 2010  (Technical Article)
Security researcher at Kaspersky Lab comments on the recent findings from Kroll's Annual Global Fraud Survey reporting on increasing information thefts
David Emm, senior security researcher at Kaspersky Lab explains further, "The findings of this survey come as no surprise. Cyber crime has been with us for five years or so now and there is a well developed 'dark market'. Cyber criminals are intent on stealing all kinds of confidential data and selling this data to make money illegally. The web has become the lifeblood of most businesses now, and individuals bank, socialise and shop online in greater numbers than ever before. The online data that these activities generate provide rich pickings for cyber criminals.

"Cybercrime is here to stay. It is both a product of the internet age and part of the overall crime landscape, so we shouldn't think in terms of "winning the war". Instead, we need to find ways to mitigate the risks of being online. Legislation, law enforcement and technology solutions all have a part to play in this, but so too does raising staff awareness of the problem, because many of today's cyber attacks start by trying to exploit human weaknesses, for example by encouraging people to click on a link in an email or disclosing confidential information."
