Internet penetration is now 34.3% of the global population and the growing adoption of tablets and smartphones, increases the risks and potential targets for cyber crime.
Curated by Motif Investing
Today, every government, company and individual who goes online is at risk. As of 2012, computer miscreants claimed 12 cybercrime victims per second with the average cost per victim rising by 50% to a combined total of 13 billion over a 12-month period. With the growth in the mobile space, cyber crooks have cast their net beyond traditional PCs and laptops, with one in three tablet and smartphone users also hit by cyber crime last year.
Corporates are increasingly ratcheting up their spending on fighting these threats as more executives are using their personal devices at work and 85% of business executives cite cyber attacks as their primary risk concern. As a result, companies involved in the business of cyber security have an attractive opportunity to gain new customers and increase revenues.
