“Legend has it that the reason why criminal Willie Sutton robbed banks was “because that’s where the money is.” Today it is not just our money that is accessed online, but our very identities. Given that we live in an age of digitization, it follows that criminals will become digital criminals. We all need to adapt to this new world. This is going to involve security awareness not only for executives and law enforcement officials but for all citizens.”
