It seems that everything relies on technology these days, after all, most of us use computers, tablets or mobile phones for e-mails, entertainment, online banking and shopping. Of course, this means that much of our personal information is stored either on our own computers or on someone else’s system.
Practically all businesses and organisations worldwide use computers and the internet to store, process and communicate information – much of it sensitive and confidential.
Gaining illegal access to both personal and organisational information can be very lucrative for cyber criminals; it can also be very satisfying for those seeking some form of revenge or wishing to enjoy the kudos of breaking into apparently secure systems.
