Cybersecurity Cartoons Protect You From Hackers And Identity Theft

Cybercrime is no laughing matter

Cybersecurity Ventures is excited to provide our readers with two new original cartoons every month.

If you’d like to include one of our cartoons on your website or in your media, then you will need to provide attribution to us as the source (i.e. “Cartoon by Cybersecurity Ventures”), with a hyperlink to us.

Gone Phishing

Email phishing initiates more than 90 percent of all cyberattacks, including ransomware infections. The distractions and frustrations stemming from working at the kitchen or dining room table can lead to poor judgment – even clicking just to get away from it all. Be smart. Don’t click. Stay safe.

Job Scams

Fake jobs are advertised on Internet job boards, newspapers, TV, and radio. Unsuspecting candidates can be lured into a false sense of security when talking to (so-called) new employers. Be smart. Don’t click. Stay safe.

Ransomware Refunds

IT teams may be overeager to prove themselves by attempting to negotiate money back as part of their incident response. But ransoms, which are paid out with cryptocurrency, are non-refundable. Be smart. Don’t click. Stay safe.

Phishing Dummies

Do you know the difference between a phishing scam and a spear phishing attack? Spear phishing attacks try to fool people who work at particular businesses. Knowledge is power in the war against cybercrime. Be smart. Don’t click. Stay safe.
