Hackers always try to hack into the servers of companies and leak information just to get their name on news. Most of these hackers are college students who have increased the rate of cyber crimes. It is really hard to find out these new hackers because they breach and then go under ground forever. These attacks have also increased the company’s investment in cyber security.
