Know how to avoid cyber fraud? Take the test!

So you think you can recognise a phishing email? Yes?

65 CEO who took part in a cybersecurity event gave the same answer to that question. With the same degree of confidence. By the end of the event, 40 of them had been phished by an ethical hacker. It wasn’t even that difficult.

Data protection, cyber security and personal data governance are rapidly becoming critical departments within tech companies and banks. This has prompted the emergence of lots of new job titles, like ‘Data Protection Officer (DPO)’, ‘Chief Information Security Officer (CISO)’, ‘Forensic Computer Analyst’, ‘Information Security Analyst (ISA)’ and even ‘Penetration Tester’.

The same goes for ING. Our cyber security teams are expanding at an incredible pace. We pay a lot of attention to how we protect ourselves and our customers online. Because we know what the risks are. But do you?

Take this quiz and discover how (un)informed and protected you are online.

If a sudden sense of paranoia is creeping up on you after seeing your quiz results, then don’t worry. We are here to help.

As an IT-heavy company, we want to make sure data is exchanged safely, for our customers, employees and suppliers.

If you are that kid in the basement, but with good intentions, then you'll find a bunch of interesting career horizons in the virtual world.
