The final GTT Cybercrime Prevention Hour Workshop discussed one of the most important aspects of cybercrime risk. Over several months the GTT workshops have covered many aspects cybercrime and concluded that devices and networks all have vulnerabilities that can be exploited, but the greatest weakness in our online security was often ourselves. Our behaviours, habits and natural curiosity create the vulnerabilities confidence tricksters use to find out information about us to commit fraud or extortion.
Workshop proposes factors to consider. What people do on the internet and how they access and use services affect an individual’s exposure to risks. GTT proposes that these ideas can be express as an algorithm that could be developed to measure personal risk. The edited presentation discussion outlining the proposed algorithm is the GTT YouTube Channel.
