Zürich, 17.3.2021 - In an increasingly digital world where millions of files containing sensitive data are uploaded and downloaded, fraud cases are a common occurrence. Any person or organization who deals with sensitive data, such as financial transactions or medical records, can become a victim of fraud along with the consequences it can cost you or your firm.
Fraud can affect anyone but is mainly prevalent in places like Switzerland, with its wide use of technology and booming business industry. When fraud or corporate cases arise, you can feel confident turning to Private Investigator Switzerland to solve your fraud issue by providing information and evidence of a crime. Having solid proof allows you or your company to hold your fraudster responsible and have justice served.
How Does Fraud Happen?
There are two types of ways that fraud can occur to you, either online or offline. With your online business, hackers can leak or destroy your information, which can compromise your business and your client's trust. Hackers can steal an organization's or individual's data by using malware. For example, companies typically receive untrustworthy emails containing attachments that may hold viruses, malvertising, pirated software, or suspicious downloads.
Cybercriminals can also attack by using phishing to extract sensitive information. They may pose as a well-known company via email to grab the information of the person who clicks on it. There are countless other ways that bad actors can exploit a company and its employees to gain access to valuable data.
Offline fraud can be tied to different types of paper information that can be stolen or lost, such as paper mail, checkbooks, or wallets. Hackers can even perform a fake change of address to receive your information or steal your data from the garbage for the sole purpose of committing fraud.
What Do Hackers Do with Your Information?
Hackers can use personal or company data to steal money to pay off debt, buy items online and apply for credit cards or mortgages with stolen personal information. They can also sell data such as login information, personally identifiable information (PII), credit card information, and valuable intellectual property on the dark web to questionable recipients.
Some criminals even hold a company's data ransom, trying to push the company to pay the ransom, and if the company does not, the hackers will sell the data to the highest bidder. This data is sold in batches, and the more recent the data, the more valuable it is to outside parties.
