Data Breaches, Denial of Service Attacks, Malware, Phishing and Computer Network Intrusions have reached an all-time high in the United States. The majority of these cybercrime incidents are targeting not only merchants, but the U.S. Financial Infrastructure. Highly skilled hackers and educated malware writers from Eastern European are the main perpetrators of these electronic crimes. Right now, some are amongst us here in South Florida and in major metropolitan areas in the United States.
