Cybersecurity hacking can cause real havoc. Whatever technique hackers use, once they have gained access to your data or devices, they can:

  • Steal your money and open credit card and bank accounts in your name
  • Destroy your credit rating
  • Request new account Personal Identification Numbers (PINs) or additional credit cards
  • Make purchases on your behalf
  • Add themselves or an alias that they control as an authorized user so it’s easier to use your credit
  • Obtain cash advances
  • Use and abuse your Social Security number
  • Sell your information to others who will use it for malicious purposes
  • Delete or damage important files on your computer
  • Obtain sensitive personal information and share it, or threaten to share it, publicly
