What is cyber fraud?
Examples of cyber fraud and data theft include:
- A cyber-attack installs a virus on your computers and renders them unusable
- A phishing email tricks users into betraying confidential passwords, which are then used to commit fraudulent acts on the victim’s IT system
In the last 24 months, 52% of Belgian businesses were the victims of cyber-attacks. Technological advances, the increasing amount of data requiring protection and the sharp rise in social media use are making businesses more vulnerable to cybercrime.
