Cyber threats are becoming a daily routine as goons sitting on a pc or mobile phone are looting innocent people almost every day. The cyber police are now working more than any other law enforcement as they have also been considering all possible ways of expanding their workforce to meet the caseload.
The recently released reports have shown a big jump in cybercrime cases in the second quarter. The number of cases is more than double the cases of Q1. The Q2 figures are targeted at Internet users from April to July. These stats are pretty concerning as it paints an uncertain picture of internet security and raises many questions on Telecom and Internet services and many other factors.
Kaspersky, one of the leading anti-virus and cyber security firms, has revealed that Q2 in terms of web threats has been very bad for India as it jumped from 3.8 crore cases in Q1(Jan-March) to 8.3 crore cases in Q2. The firm also showed how this caseload had increased eightfold compared to Q2 figures of 2020 and 2021.
While these numbers are a pan India number, the reports in cities keep Hyderabad, Mumbai, Delhi, and Bangalore covering a good chunk of cases from the above numbers. While Kaspersky is making brief reports and comparisons, the firm's general manager for South Asia has expressed that these numbers will continue to rise eight folds or ten folds or even higher if people are not aware and do not use the internet and online transactions, and other processes with complete knowledge.
