Cybercrime Report
Read our Cybercrime Report for July-December 2020 to understand the current growth trajectories of global digital commerce and specific transaction activities. Explore detailed insights into the most pervasive cybercrime trends and frequently targeted industries. You’ll see why a dynamic, multi-layered fraud prevention strategy is pivotal to fully capitalizing on digital commerce opportunities and confidently defending your business in a rapidly evolving cybercrime environment.
As initial consumer reactions to the COVID-19 pandemic settled into durable, more defined buying behaviors in the second half of 2020, the importance of a robust and seamlessly connected omni-channel ecosystem became evident. Well-networked cybercriminals persist in leveraging the threat vectors of automated bot attacks, new account creations and payment transactions to relentlessly target key points across the customer journey.
