Cybercrime – the Global Threat, the Commercial Risk and Counter Mitigation Strategies


Neil Walsh, the Chief of the United Nation’s Global Program on Cybercrime, gave a highly enlightening and engaging presentation explaining the extent of the global threat, the commercial risk and counter mitigation options currently being used in the  fight against cybercrime. Neil emphasized that cybercrime education (even from a very early age), especially when using real criminal-case examples, can help individuals and businesses truly understand the risks of cybercrime and can enable them to better evaluate and consider their own threat mitigation strategies.
