Sitting Duck

How better to describe an easy cybercrime target than a Sitting Duck? Sitting Ducks have been vulnerable prey from time immemorial. Cybercriminals, like most criminals, will first zero in on the easiest targets – Sitting Ducks.

Alongside the exponential growth of the World Wide Web, there is a parallel cyberworld, sinister in nature, sometimes called the Dark Web, fostered and operated by cybercriminals that act like highwaymen of old who rely on shock and disruption to gain their own ends. To counter these cybercriminals, the Celebrity Experts® in this book work to secure their clients’ systems and data. With added government regulations for compliance and privacy, these specialists are often called upon to train employees to meet strict regulatory compliance standards.

Unfortunately, cybercrime is not localized. Hacking into computers is a worldwide practice. It disrupts our businesses and social systems, and often demands ransom payments in Bitcoin (or similar cybercurrency) that is virtually untraceable. The Celebrity Experts® in this book are consulted and retained to ensure our businesses and organizations don’t become a Sitting Duck for cybercriminals. They can protect us, our businesses and our organizations from devastating financial and social consequences that cybercriminals cause. … And they give you peace of mind!
