Cybercrime: The Infographic

Have you ever wondered how many laptops get stolen from airports each week? How about the average cost of replacing a swiped desktop or the number of people who experienced multiple ID thefts in the past year? This infographic from security provider Check Point looks at the impact of computer theft and compromised data as well as some of the steps you can take to limit your vulnerability.

While the below infographic is a bit US-focused, it does throws up some highly interesting data. Apparently, your laptop has a 1-in-10 chance of being stolen in its lifetime, for example. We don’t like those odds. (Disclaimer: The infographic becomes a bit of a shameless spruik for Check Point towards the end but it still offers some broad security advice that is pretty decent.)

The same company has also produced another infographic centered on mobile security: you can see both of them below.
