Everyone seems to agree that cybercrime in 2017 was terrible.  The experts expect higher numbers of attacks and more people affected in 2018!

Top threats this year:
1:  Cryptojacking.  In theory this was a good idea that went bad.  This was supposed to be an alternative to ads in games and on media sites.  The idea was to embed it into JavaScript and that every person who used it would help to ‘mine’ currency making ads obsolete.

Instead of being used the way it was supposed to be, cybercriminals have changed it so that they can get into your hardware and software and attack a person and their assets.

What you can do?
1:  Make sure your operating system is up-to-date!
2:  Be aware of where you are online and if you want to be there.
3:  Have an antivirus installed and make sure it’s up-to-date!
