We recently learned that the cost of cybercrime now exceeds the government budget for the NHS by 70 billion pounds!

Just to clarify – the UK NHS budget costs £122bn per year, whilst the cost of fraud to the UK economy is now estimated at £192bn per year.

That’s quite staggering.  In the last twelve months I have dealt with cybercrime incidents where my customers or close friends were defrauded of thousands of pounds.  YET people still say to me “I don’t understand all that computer stuff”.

I think the time has come, if a person cannot grasp the essentials of computer security, or understand basic truths about the dangers of the internet and email today, they really shouldn’t be using a computer at all.

It’s like owning a car and having the attitude “I don’t understand all this driving lark”.  You would not expect their driving experiences to end well.
