IC3 Releases Annual Report Highlighting Trends in Internet Crime

If you’re over 60, then 55,043 of your fellows were victims of cybercrime during 2016 — to the tune of $339,474,918 dollars. It’s not if you will be attacked. It’s when you will discover you were.

And every day, somebody questions why we continue to warn of attacks and post our alerts.

A computer can have your bank account information, family photos, and other private documents and data—information that fraudsters would like to steal. That’s why tech support fraud has become a significant trend in online crime, according to the 2016 Internet Crime Report from the…

FBI’s Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3).

All you doubters and hecklers out there, don’t take our word for it — go read it yourself.

Have the predictions come true? How big is too big to fail? How big is too big to litigate? How big is too big to hide from?

Safenetting

User Group Network UGN Safenetting and cyber world report Since I’m in the middle of reading the book “Future Crimes” for the 2nd time, I’m learning a lot about the internet, cyber security, who the players are, and what the real threats are. If you are still worried about the NSA, or Snoden’s revelations, or even the Russian hacks and Wikileaks, you’re doomed to ignorance. These are kindergarten games compared to the real Big Brothers who stalk us all.

It’s a new year, and the elections are over. We have a new president we should all be standing behind. But there’s trouble in the world, and many people are pandering to it without even an inkling of the truth. The trouble isn’t what you think. It’s far more insidious than even those protesters can fathom. It will come slowly and quietly, until you suddenly discover it was happening all along, and the world is powerless to stop it.

User Group Network UGN Safenetting and cyber world report As each day goes by, the state of cyber world gets more and more outrageous. Thanks to Trump the predator media has suddenly become accutly aware of the cyber war and all the risks that lie just below the horizon of the nearest internet connection. Talking heads pontificate ad nauseam about the Russian hack and what’s happening next. Suddenly they’ve discovered the threats we’ve been talking about since 2008. First Obama said he wouldn’t do anything (see last week’s InfoManager), now he says he is. People seem to think this is the first time, or that it was specifically Putin supporting Trump. What twits. But seriously folks, this is the season to be hyper aware of your surroundings and what you’re doing to protect yourself. And of course, Safenetting and the InfoManager are there for you!
