DDIntel - Cybercrimes, Gene Therapy, and Financial Freedom
By DataDrivenInvestor • Issue #21 • View online
Virtual globalization has expanded the internet and connected it to our lives. Over the last ten years, as the internet has become more prevalent within our social and financial affairs, we have become more susceptible to cyber-attacks and data breaches. As a result, the internet has made us more vulnerable than ever before. Across sectors, data breaches and online security issues are commonplace. 
More specifically, due to the covid-19 pandemic, cyber-attacks have seen a 600% increase across industries. Anything that can make the attackers money is on the table for cybercriminals, even our medical records. The health care industry has seen a 58% increase in cyberattacks, and it is likely to worsen in the future.
Similarly, developing markets such as cryptocurrency and NFTs are also being attacked, with criminals seeing these digital assets as lucrative opportunities. Yesterday alone, over three NFT projects were hacked, including the Solana NFT project Fractal, the victim of a malicious Discord attack, costing the project’s supporters over $100,000.
Likewise, hackers stole $1.5 million from NFT project Phantom Galaxies last month. As a result, cybercrime is everywhere, becoming more prevalent. This issue of DDIntel covers how to protect yourself against cybercrime and how the healthcare industry has been hit hard by cyber attacks, alongside other interesting topics.
