Users are more afraid of loss of data from social networks than from banking systems
According to Forbes, the company Appinions conducted a study that the banking systems of the burglary and theft of the data reported in only 2% of all cybercrime. According to the information security experts, this is due to the fact that users are more afraid of losing data in the accounts in social networks, rather than leaking information on bank cards.
The reason for this is that social networks contain information that an attacker can use to place on the Web, which, according to users, can cause damage to their reputation. As for the banking system, the users are confident that they are more reliable, and the data stored in them are protected by the rights of privacy and can not be used with the application of non-pecuniary damage.
Analyzed the data of more than 500 blogs and informational web-sites, the researchers said that the policy of the United States and China were in the top 15 most talked about influential individuals appearing in conversations on the topic of cyber attacks.
One of the most popular topics related to cyberspace and cyber security, information security is the attraction of Google experts to the work of organizations that are fighting against cybercriminals.
According to the researchers, Google is the only company among other technology companies that affect the ways and methods of dealing with hackers. Other companies, such as Facebook and Twitter, Google may follow suit and join the discussion, but not to act as an advisor.
