Business Security: The profile of cyber attackers seems to have evolved over the last few years. Opponents are becoming more and more constant, using new technologies to create and expand their business to increase their impact and financial profits.
Businesses on the other hand (small and large online businesses that have appeared in Greece) do not seem to have the knowledge that will protect them and mitigate the risks they face.

Reduce goals: With the expansion of mobile telephony and the Internet of Things, there has been a dramatic increase in the space that each business leaves in possible attacks. Each company should invest in security in its development processes, and focus on protecting interactions between data, applications and users, regardless of the device for better mitigation of the opponent's attacks. Because the easiest goal is the man man, every business should invest in the training of its employees.
Learn from opponents: There are new technologies such as "fraudulent networks" that provide methods of trapping, tracking and learning from intruders themselves. To protect yourself from hackers you need to think and act like them. Companies can use this information to better protect their actual network, to be able to disrupt similar attacks before they even begin, or to slow down the attackers' progress.
