About Cyber Security

Cyber security is a highly profitable, international business. Believe it or not, many sources of cyber secuirty are highly organised companies with offices, staff, HR departments, coffee machines – almost indistinguishable from a regular law-abiding business in the city. Some will hold your data to ransom, others will look to sneak inside your systems to sit and wait for something like a large financial transaction to take place over email. They will jump in the middle of that conversation and change the bank details on the invoice that is sent so you or your customer pay the money in to the criminals bank account.
