The pandemic has demonstrated just how much we depend on our online devices. From being able to work in the safety of our homes, to buying groceries online and booking virtual workout classes, it has proved that the move towards a fully digital world is within reach. Our dependence on the internet has also reminded us how much personal information we share – whether on social media, online banking and shopping, or our own professional profiles.
These characteristics that we openly disclose are exactly what fraudsters are looking for to exploit us – from using this information to pull our heartstrings in online dating scams to tricking our banks to gain access to our savings. We often overlook the trail of breadcrumbs of information we are leaving behind us, making it all too easy for a fraudster to take advantage.
