The danger of cybercrime is growing every day, especially in the financial industry which remains the main target for most criminals. According to the General Prosecutor’s Office, in the first half of 2017, cybercrime in Russia has increased by more than 30%. The number of crimes in the IT industry has increased sixfold since 2013.
BI.ZONE fights against cybercriminals and protects businesses of various industries. Our hard work pays off: over the past year, we have managed to block more than 2,000 domains with malicious software in the Runet alone, as well as over 700 websites secretly collecting user account data of bank and payment systems customers.
The Digital Peaks Award proves that our work doesn’t go unnoticed, and we truly appreciate that. In 2018, the overall number of cyberattacks is likely to grow, but the BI.ZONE team will continue to work hard to protect our clients and their customers.
