We are constantly being told to watch out for identity fraud, scamming mails, and rogue callers. It seems like it is never-ending. It is as annoying as it is slightly terrifying the lengths that people will go to in order to either scam you out of divulging your security details to then hold your information to ransom for payment in cash or more commonly now in bitcoins.
It seems like it is not only your computer system that is susceptible to these types of hacking and fraudulent attacks. Even your mobile phone and business telephone system are being targeted. As this type of technology becomes more and more popular the hackers are becoming more interested in the data they can harvest from you as well as the money that can be made.
The impact that they have on companies is massive. A survey that was conducted on a global scale by the Communications Fraud Control Association noted that in 2015, fraud cost the industry in excess of $36 billion that year. This will have increased dramatically in the years since the survey was conducted.
