The Inevitability of Cyber Crime

Think of all the ways you could be a victim of a crime. Do you register any of those as inevitable? In nearly every case, it’s not even close with one major exception… identity theft.

76% of Americans now believe it’s inevitable that they will be victims of identity theft/cybercrime and nearly 48% aren’t even concerned about it.

ERP Maestro recently performed a survey of consumer behavior to learn more about identify theft and cybercrime in America in 2019.

Highlights include:

  • 37% of Americans say they’ve already been victims of cybercrime and identity theft
  • 57% of Americans believe if something happens, the damage will just get reversed
  • The top states for identity theft 1.Michigan 2.California 3.Florida (full rankings in the link below)

The full analysis can be seen here. Take a look and let me know if this is something you would be interested in sharing with your audience or if you have any follow up questions that I can answer.
