National Cyber Security Ventures, Corporation
A mistake often made by CEO’s in nearly every industry is that they trust their IT department to protect them from computer hackers. What CEO’s often fail to understand is that it does not matter how educated your IT manager or CTO may be, it does not make them a hacker, or capable of thinking like a hacker. Unlike your accountant or your attorney, hacking is not something you learn in a classroom. Unlike other crimes, its existence has only been in the past 30 years, and education has not yet caught up with the crime. It takes an ethical hacker to think like a hacking criminal!
When most people hear the term “Cyber Crime” it is often equated with computer hackers. This is far from the truth. In 2016 Cyber Crime generated over $3 trillion. This was a combination of computer hacking, cyber bulling, cyber extortion, phishing scams, online dating scams, identity theft and industrial espionage just to name a few.
At National Cyber Security Ventures we invest in cyber crime companies, products and services that cover a broad aspect of the cyber crime industry.
