Education and outreach are of paramount importance in an effective cybersecurity program, Davis said in an article. Part of his efforts include educating and working with Hikvision partners on cybersecurity best practices.
Below, Davis outlines a few top reasons why cybersecurity crimes are committed:
- To gather information to sell to advertisers
- Ego hackers trying to break into “unbreakable” systems
- Cyber-crimes that are committed to cover up other crimes
- Everything from curiosity to extortion
“Cybercrime is a huge, organized business,” Davis adds. “Some pages that sell malicious scripts even offer tech support.”
