Internet Facilitated Organised Crime

Internet Facilitated Organised Crime
Europol’s new iOCTA* report examines how EU citizens are risking their personal identities, privacy and computer data through the use of social media tools which are increasingly a target for cybercriminal activity.

The majority of organisations have come to accept the use of social networking sites in the workplace. But under the right circumstances, access to social media at work has the potential to infect corporate networks with spyware and other means to harvest large amounts of personal, corporate and financial data for profit. 33% of small and medium businesses in the US say that they have been infected with malicious software distributed through social networking sites. 35% of those infected suffered financial loss, and more than a third of these lost more than $5000 as a result of the infection (source: PandaLabs). Organisations can reduce these risks by drawing up social media guidelines for employees to follow.

Blijft helaas onduidelijk waarom BitDefender dit opvallend en vooral ook een beveiligingsrisico vindt.
