It's hard to talk about cybersecurity without mentioning the Finnish company F-Secure, which is a benchmark in this field. This company, founded in 1988, can boast of having more than thirty years of experience to its credit. During all these years, F-Secure has made a point of protecting tens of thousands of companies and millions of individuals through its network of distribution partners and its more than 200 service providers.
F-Secure is always looking for a better solution that can provide its users with high level cybersecurity. This is why on June 9, 2020, the Finnish company launched ID PROTECTION , a new tool that will offer you “an integrated approach to the protection of information and personal accounts. "

Identity theft, an increasingly widespread practice
In this era we live in, identity theft has become commonplace. All of our activities are now governed by our personal data. We need it to open accounts, get loans, find a job, buy a car, or even buy a house.
Cybercriminals have decided to take advantage of this situation. In just a few clicks, the most knowledgeable of them can have access to all your data. According to a study carried out by F-Secure, 1.8 computer intrusions are identified every day. In some cases, people who get hacked don't even realize it.
Users who expose themselves to real danger
You are probably wondering what this data, once stolen, can be used for. Jonathan Farhi, Key Account Marketing Manager, answers this question:
“Once your data is leaked, it can end up for sale on the Dark Web after a few months. This will put you on lists and become an easy target for advanced cyber attacks. "
He goes on to explain that your credentials can be used by cybercriminals to "take control of your online accounts and start ordering goods with your credit card." "

For F-Secure, protecting your data is a priority. A survey carried out in April 2020 by this company revealed that an Internet user has on average 18 accounts. 41% of survey respondents, from 10 different countries, said they used the same password on multiple accounts. 56% of them say they use the same password on multiple accounts, with slight variations.
