The impact of account takeover

The world, which is full of technological innovations, data, the problem of protecting this data from fraud is becoming more urgent than ever. Fraud is on the rise, as is information security and attack prevention software. Most people do not think about the importance of protecting their personal data until they are affected by this issue.

Let's take a look at what an account hijacking is. ATO is a fraudster getting access to an account and then changing the account data, making unauthorized transactions.

This type of fraud affects small or large businesses. ATO suffers tens of billions of dollars in fraud losses every year.

However, due to ATO, fraud is growing rapidly every year. Juniper Research predicts losses of $ 25.6 billion in 2020, while it was $ 5.1 billion in 2017

ATO also comes in the form of scammers hijacking an account and making fraudulent purchases or even opening new accounts using the victim's information. These issues can affect both individual organizations and entire enterprises. For example, in 2019 in the United States, they are estimated to have lost $ 7 billion. In addition, scammers hijack mobile phone accounts when arming. 680,000 people were killed in 2019, up 78 percent from a year earlier. Thus, ATO is a problem to which it is necessary to find a solution to protect both individuals and entire companies.
