Victim of Cybercrime?
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 ranging survey of consumer behavior to learn more about identify theft and cybercrime in America in 2019.
- 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
- 68% of Americans feel that there was nothing they could have done to prevent the crime
