Look, I have been talking about this for years.  Lately, people are taking notice.

It is estimated that nearly 30,000 websites are infected with some type of malware every single day.  Some attacks from recent history you may remember is the Target hack, where 70 million people had their information stolen, and also JP Morgan Chase where over 76 million households were affected and 7 million small businesses were compromised.  Many people tend to think that only large companies are targeted by hackers, but that is not the case.  Most of the businesses that are affected by hackers are small businesses and you do not want to be one of them!   Personal blogs, company websites, and large news sites, are just a few examples of the things hackers can target.  Wherever they see an easy target, they will do anything to capitalize on it by spreading malicious software or stealing information.  Some of these statistics will give you an idea about cyber attacks and how many people are affected by it.  

  • 1.  According to Stopthehacker.com “it takes only 10 minutes to crack a lowercase password that is 6 characters long. Add two extra letters and a few uppercase letters and that number jumps to 3 years. Add just one more character and some numbers and symbols and it will take 44,530 years to crack.”
  • 2.  Nearly three quarters, 73 percent, of all Americans have fallen victim to some type of cyber crime.
  • 3.  “In a recent survey it was reported that 90 percent of all businesses suffered some sort of computer hack over the past 12 months and 77 percent of these companies felt that they were successfully attacked several times over the same period of time.”
  • 4.  “Over 27 million Americans have fallen victim to identity theft over the past five years. 9 million of them found their identities stolen in the last year alone.”
