Cyber crime: 2021 another dan­gerous year

At the end of the year, one thing is clear: Internet crim­i­nals are more active than ever, and are becoming ever more brazen. This is what you can to do effec­tively pro­tect your­self in 2021, too.

2020 was a demanding year. Com­pa­nies, schools and users had to move many of their activ­i­ties to their own home or had to resolve this problem using other online chan­nels. E-banking, mobile pay­ments and online shop­ping were facil­i­ties used more heavily than ever as well. Much to the delight of Internet fraud­sters who knew just how to exploit the latest dig­i­tal­i­sa­tion drive for their own crim­inal intents.

And they keep doing so – var­ious secu­rity com­pa­nies have researched cur­rent cyber crime trends and found that 2021 will be another chal­lenging year. Since Covid‑19 for instance will keep dom­i­nating the head­lines, fraud­sters will keep using news reporting on vac­cines or new national restric­tions for their phishing cam­paigns. Mal­ware remains a danger, too. Hackers keep devel­oping ever more sophis­ti­cated mal­ware, en-masse.

It is there­fore more impor­tant than ever to take respon­si­bility for pro­tecting your own devices. Gear up for 2021 with our secu­rity tips:
