Cybercrime in EMEA – Adapting to a Post-Pandemic World

The impact of the big shift to digital operations in 2020 has been more heavily felt in the first half of 2021 particularly in the world of cybercrime and online fraud. With the increase in the number of digital transactions, there has been a parallel increase in the number of automated attacks by fraudsters. 

Data gathered from LexisNexis® revealed that in the first six months of this year, there has been a 28% increase in processed transactions globally, compared to the same period last year. Within that time automated bot attacks also rose by 41%, but it is important to note that not all industries faced the same level of attack.
