Cyber Threat Intelligence Event

CEBU, Philippines — The sophistication of cyber-criminals taking advantage of digitalization does not only pose immense threats to companies, and government agencies but also to everyone, regardless of social status as long as they are active on social media platforms, a cybersecurity expert warned.

“In an interview with Resecurity’s Chief Operating Officer (COO) Ben Ouano, during his recent visit to Cebu, he stated that individuals who are overly exposed on social media platforms, sharing their activities, whereabouts, and personal information such as mobile numbers and addresses, are more vulnerable to ‘personal identity’ theft, which is now being monetized by hackers.”

Identity theft is the crime of using the personal or financial information of another person to commit fraud, such as making unauthorized transactions or purchases.
