Hardly any other sector is booming as strongly as cybercrime. Corona has caused a special boom because even more economic activities are being shifted to the digital. Much of it under time pressure, such as teleworking. This emerges from the new Global Threat Report from the Silicon Valley company CrowdStrike, which the cyber defense specialist publishes every year. “The cyber actors are getting bolder and more sophisticated every day,” says CrowdStrike Manager Adam Meyers.

The cybercrime boom is not going to die down. The new US Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen even fears a new wave of even more sophisticated attacks. She also warns of the downside of cryptocurrency. “The reality is that cryptocurrencies are used to launder drug money and also as a tool to finance terrorism.”
