The scale and complexity of cyber-crime continues to grow. Cyber-criminals target institutions and individuals through various channels, including hacking, phishing and the installation of malware on vulnerable systems, utilising social engineering to augment these efforts. The effectiveness of such attacks has been compounded by the emergence of Bitcoin (and other cryptocurrencies) which have facilitated cyber-fraud by permitting payments to be made outside of the traditional banking payment infrastructure.Our cyber-fraud credentials are based on our core strengths in the following areas:
