Here’s a brief overview of the publication, excerpted from their online content:
“Internet fraud is one of those things that can be hard to define and talk about, but everyone knows it exists. You almost certainly know someone who has been affected by it, even if they haven’t mentioned the issue. There are simply so many scams, instances of identity theft, and attempts that it is just a standard part of life to protect yourself against it.
And yet while it remains a constant as a concept, the details constantly change as technology improves and expands, and as cybercriminals change up their efforts in an attempt to find greater success. It is a never-ending battle, and cybersecurity and antifraud experts know this. A new scheme is born every day, and all it takes is one successful one to cause a lot of problems. That means that it is important to refresh yourself on the specifics and changes every once in a while and to simply remind yourself that staying vigilant is important to your safety.”
