Just as more businesses are operating online and more sensitive information is being stored on computers and on the Internet, the cyber crime industry is also seeing a boom in action.

Phishing, viruses and different types of malware are huge facilitators of online scams and security breaches, yet according to this infographic by GO-Gulf, 33% of all cyber attacks originate from some criminal insider and over half of ex-employees openly admit to stealing company data while leaving. The costs of these attacks are huge, mostly due to fraud and repair charges as well as the replacement fee for lost or stolen computers.

Along with these statistics and the fact that one in ten social network users fall victim to cyber crime activity, the cyber security market is expected to expand drastically. Stats for Online Security Stat Charts Trending: Older & Chilly
