Title: Effects of Cybercrimes
Post by: mnsalim on April 20, 2017, 03:49:26 PM
Effects of Cybercrimes:
Cyber crime affects more than the financial integrity of a business. There are many real and damaging consequences associated with internet crime. The losses are various types, Li

Loss o
f Revenue:-One of the main effects of cyber crime on a company is a loss of revenue. This loss can be caused by an outside party who obtains sensitive financial information, using it to withdraw funds from an organization. It can also occur when a business's e-commerce site becomes compromised while inoperable, valuable income is lost when consumers are unable to use the site.

Wasted time:- Another major effect or consequence of cyber crime is the time that is wasted when  IT Personnel must devote great portions of their day handling such incidences. Rather than working on productive measures for an organization, many IT staff members spend a large percentage of their time handling security breaches and other problems associated with cyber crime.

Damaged Reputations:-In cases where customer records are compromised by a security breach associated with cyber crime, a company's reputation can take a major hit. Customers whose credit cards or other financial data become intercepted by hackers or others infiltrators lose confidence in an organization and often begin taking their business elsewhere. 

Reduced Productivity:-Due  to the  measures that  many companies must implement to counteract cyber crime, there is often a negative effect on employee's productivity. This is because, due to security measures, employees must enter more password and perform other time consuming acts in order to do their jobs. Every second wasted performing these tasks is a second not spent working in a productive manner.
