Is your CEO a cybercrime target?

With one mouse click on a seemingly internal email, your CEO could unwittingly enable a cyber­criminal to mine his hard drive for credit card numbers, passwords to corporate databases or other proprietary information.

They can use that information to wreak havoc elsewhere, or they can sell it for profit.
