Half of all UK crimes are cyber. A whopping five million.
My photo above, from the day’s London Times’ striking barchart depiction.
Note that the UK “crime survey” is a deliberately separate counterbalance to police recorded figures.
The previous evening, I caught a Professor Alan Woodward discuss the frightening level of computer fraud. He cited the millions lost this past year due to malware called Dridex. A trojan which steals your banking details.
He cautioned against an imminent big phishing scam. Which he felt would start along familiar email lines; “Dear valued customer, something is wrong please click this link….”
He urged awareness of his ABC for cyber fraud.
I couldn’t help but feel the snug fit with our perception of prospect preferences.
An entertaining and worthy test across any forecast session this month.
