Online fraud is rampant these days. Both a costly and dangerous phenomenon, it can take many forms, including:
- Data breaches—When personal or financial information is stolen from a secure location
- Phishing—The utilization of fake emails or websites to steal personal information
- Credit card fraud—When scammers steal your credit or bank card numbers
- Malware—Dangerous software that is inadvertently downloaded by a user, or planted on a network by an adversary, to disable a system
Online fraud doesn’t have a set ‘type’—it affects government organizations, global businesses, small companies, and your personal friends. Malicious actors defraud millions of people each and every year through the internet. That’s why it’s not only important to recognize the signs of online fraud, but to also know how, as an organization or consumer, you can take care of it.
It’s time to investigate
It’s important to note that every online activity—malicious or not—leaves a trail of evidence. But just because the path may be hard to find, doesn’t mean that you can’t track down the activity. Through proper online fraud investigation, all online activity can be traced, following those evidence right to the source.
