They exchange huge amounts of data online daily. However, every day there are lakhs of people who are ready to steal their confidential information online through hacking, spyware, malware, or viruses. Now the sources of these malware/viruses may vary but the surveys have shown that almost 90% of them are received through E-mails. Though companies have started taking cyber security seriously. A survey recently revealed that worldwide spending on cybercrime is forecast to reach $133.7 billion in 2022. But this doesn’t necessarily mean that cybercrimes have started to come down. Almost 65% of the companies experienced a phishing attack in 2019.
