Did you know that there are 720 million technology system hack attempts every 24 hours worldwide? On average, companies lose $9 million each year due to cybercrime and many times it takes a business up to 99 days to detect malicious code in their systems.
Over the years, cybercrime has grown significantly in volume and sophistication with the largest threats coming from China, Iran, North Korea and professional cybercriminals. These attacks have the potential of wreaking catastrophic effects on the financial industry, businesses of all sizes and personal accounts.
