The Rise of Cyber Crime

There's no denying that cyber crime is getting worse every year, but where did it all start?

Looking back 20 years, the most common cyber attacks were malicious code, Trojans and advanced worms

Now cyber attacks include banking malware, bitcoin wallet stealers, ransomware and POS attacks.. just to name a few

The first ransomware attack was reported in 1989, where the victim had to pay $189

Whereas last year, the South Korean company 'Nayana' had to pay approximately $1 million in ransomware attack

The total cost of cyber crime is expected to hit US $6 trillion by 2021.

This would make it the greatest transfer of economic wealth in history
