Symantec: ‘The attacker still has the upper hand,’ says the Dutch government’s most recent Cyber Security Report. The report continues: attackers are getting smarter, more devices are being connected to the internet and yet many incidents could have been prevented by implementing basic security measures.
The human and business consequences are high. In 2011, for example, internet banking fraud alone resulted in Dutch losses of €35 million, according to the report. Over 3 million Dutch citizens in 2013 said that they have been victims of cybercrime in the last 12 months according the Norton Cybercrime Report.
