"After falling prey to one identity attack, victims frequently clean up their digital footprint and adopt better security practices,” he told TechNewsWorld.

“In this light, a 3% decrease in victims is not as encouraging as it may first appear,” he said. “I would hope for larger improvements.”

“Unfortunately,” he added, “cyber actors take at least one step forward for every step their victims take towards better security, and they are constantly developing new methods of attack."
