Ahoy matey, Winston ‘ere. My, my it has been a while! I’m thrilled to be back, especially because today is Talk Like a Pirate Day! Perhaps you already think I sound like a pirate with my English accent, but I think not.
Did you know that Talk Like a Pirate Day was started by 2 mates in 1995, and that the State of Michigan in the U.S of A, officially recognizes this holiday?! Arrrrrgh...
What’s really got me saying Arrrrgh these days, is the fact that the U.K has just reached 9 million cybercrime victims. That is a shocking statistic if I’ve ever heard one...here are some more interesting ones:
- If you’re over 55, the chances of you getting hit by a cyber crime are much slimmer, at least there’s something for us all to look forward to.
- If you’re 18-24, at least a quarter of you have experienced cyber crime already
- 2.3% of the population have reportedly lost +10,000 to online fraud
- Identity theft accounts for 1.7 billion in online scams
You should look after your personal and financial information mate!
What’s clear is that the social media revolution has changed the way cyber criminals operate. They now impact almost everyone, and for those that do suffer from an attack, the financial damage can be massive.
