QOTD on the new targets of cyber-crime

Cybercriminals have shifted their focus from physical assets to data driven properties, such as trade secrets or product planning documents. We’ve seen significant attacks targeting this type of information.

Criminals are targeting corporate intellectual capital and they are often succeeding.
