Electronic Theft Costing Companies More Than Physical Theft
Kroll's Tommy Helsby told Reuters, "Much more work is done electronically, and that creates new opportunities for fraud. It takes time for companies to catch up with that." Information-based industries, like finance, media and telecommunications, were the most common global targets of electronic theft because those businesses handle so much sensitive consumer data. This doesn't mean you should panic and disable your online accounts. An increase in electronic fraud could mean that we're doing a better job at detection.
