A recent worldwide cyber attack highlighted how vulnerable online users can be to the threat of malware infections and other threats that are designed to extort money from you or disrupt your systems.
This resource looks at some interesting statistics relating to topics such as which countries have the highest and lowest malware infection incidents and how likely you are to be highjacked by Ransomware.
It is interesting to note the disparity in the threat level between regions and countries, but even if you are in an area with a low threat level, it probably wouldn’t be wise to be too complacent.
