The financial devastation of high-tech crime has received much recent attention in the media. Its costs continue to escalate as hacking techniques become increasingly sophisticated, outwitting leading experts in the field and infecting the networks secured by government security agency experts.


Businesses have had private customer data compromised and stolen, with ransoms being demanded by the networks of hackers. Private individuals who have been victims of cyber-crime experience a sense of vulnerability and loss of confidence after their personal cyber-security has been trespassed.


A study tracking the financial impact of cyber-crimes between 2013 and 2015 found that the total costs of the activity approached one-half trillion dollars, with the number of incidents having increased four-fold during that same period.


Cybersecurity Ventures predicts that by 2021 this amount could increase to $6 trillion.

The estimated cost of the WannaCry attack is somewhere between $4 - $5 billion.


Domestically the problem has reached critical thresholds, receiving attention of the highest branches of lawmakers and enforcement agencies. The U.S. Congress has worked to create new legislation to deal with the cyber-crime threat. President Trump signed the Strengthening the CyberSecurity of Federal Networks and Critical Infrastructure executive order in May of this year, ordering studies and redirecting resources into addressing the problem at the federal government level.


The previous Obama Administration ordered $19 billion to strengthen the national infrastructure against these attacks.


And who can forget the embarrassment caused to former Secretary of State Hillary Clintons following her own personal cyber-security having been attacked and her compromising and damaging emails having become publicly shared on the internet? This cyber-crime epidemic, bringing despair and panic to many private individuals, San Francisco-based, security specialist firm Rubica has developed an innovative technology that protects the personal cyber-security of its customers.
