Alert for Businesses as Cyber Attacks Set to Double Crime Figures

Entry Title
Alert for Businesses as Cyber Attacks Set to Double Crime Figures
Details

Businesses in the Black Country have been alerted to protect themselves from increasingly sophisticated cyber criminals, amid concerns that attacks are set to double the national crime figures.

Nick Marlow, director at IT experts Minster Micro Computers, has issued the warning saying businesses, especially SMEs, are under ‘extreme risk’ as criminals create ways to simultaneously hack thousands of global IT systems.

The alert comes amid concern that crime statistics for England and Wales will double this summer when the Office for National Statistics (ONS) begin to include a category of cybercrime, alongside other types such as burglary, when it publishes its Crime Survey on 21 July.
