A new and comprehensive list has just been made available by a group seeking to track down the best mobile and Internet practices. The report, and the international group behind it, seeks to point out the imminent threats to online security as they currently stand, and those which may be problematic in the near future.
The report details several different sources of Internet safety issues, including spyware, phishing and malware.
This exhaustive assessment is written in a strictly non-technical way, so that everyday users of Web technology will be equipped to digest the information at hand. The report lays out steps that are preventative and will keep Internet users from exposing themselves to hackers and other cyber criminals, such as those out to steal identities and funds.
This outline is one of the first set of international affairs that seeks to help governments guard against online crime. Generally, this kind of preemptive security is carried out by individual businesses, but in this case it would benefit everyone involved, if those with the most power were making the decisions.
