UK businesses the target for cybercrime

Businesses, rather than consumers, are the new target for cybercriminals in the United Kingdom.  While banks have concentrated on providing security for consumer banking, business banking systems (particularly banking systems which transfer large sums of money) have become an increasing target.

Dave Jevans, CEO of Ironkey, in a recent Compterworld article is of the opinion that while the consumer protection side has been looked after over the past few years, business banking has suffered as a result.  In the UK, a couple of banks seem to be an increasing target for hackers and sophisticated malware.

One of the new developments that IronKey is working on is building software-based secure mobile banking applications, as it will only be a matter of time before the increasing use of this platform makes it attractive to criminals, Jevans said.

IronKey’s feature of secure access for Personal and Business have resulted in many customers being satisfied with the high level of security features on offer.
