Internet Threats

Why do you need online protection? Because the internet is teeming with all sorts of threats.

Some will crash your system. Some will allow criminals to get to your personal information and abuse it to empty your bank accounts or create credit cards and incur debts in your name. While others will lure you down dark online passageways and trick you into handing over the information yourself.

Traditional crimes such as hate crimes, telemarketing, fraud and identity theft, can all become part of the online black market, if they’re committed via internet.
