Why should I protect myself?

Crime is just as prevalent in the digital world, but it is often even more hidden and sophisticated because hackers do not have to be on site, can easily disguise themselves and attack thousands of users at the same time. In addition, many internet users are not even aware of the dangers that lurk. It is no longer only the technical security measures of institutions and companies that are attacked (e.g. APT, Dos/DDoS attacks), but there are more and more attempts to deceive employees and private individuals on a social level by means of phishing.
