From a fraud "special" in today's paper.

 

75% of all crime in 2015 was cyber related - UK National Crime Agency 2016.

 

5.8 million fraud and computer misuse offenses were recorded during 2015 across England and Wales - Office of National Statistics 2016.

 

20x more likely for an individual to be robbed online by overseas perpetrators than held up in the street - Office for National Statistics 2016.

 

And for small businesses the use of ransomware has increased 6 fold since 2014.

Make sure your anti-virus and anti-malware etc. software is active and up to date.

 

ABC. Assume nothing. Believe nobody. Check everything.
