  • How safe are you online?
  • Is your information protected?
  • What risks are you taking with your data?
  • How do you protect yourself from cybercrime?

Cybercrime is on the rise, and it is becoming easier and easier for criminals to steal your personal information. Toolkits to create viruses, spyware, and other forms of malware are now readily available to anyone wishing to defraud and do damage, and you could be leaving yourself open to attack.

It is estimated that standard computer-based defence systems catch only 25% of malware attacks. Do you know the risks you’re running online? Are you protected? An Introduction to Hacking and Crimeware answers your concerns and provides a foundation-level overview of the dark world of cybercrime.
