Artefaktum contributions for EUROPOL`s IOCTA 2021

Artefaktum is thankful for having been asked for expert opinions to support Europol`s 2021 Internet Organised Crime Threat Assessment (IOCTA) which is the most comprehensive overview of the up-to-date cybercrime threat landscape

IOCTA provides a law enforcement-focused assessment of evolving threats and key developments in the area of cybercrime. 

The accelerated digitalization related to the pandemic has significantly influenced the development of several cyber threats, including ransomware, mobile malware, online fraud, explicit self-generated material, and the abuse of legitimate services such as VPNs, encrypted communication services, and cryptocurrencies. 

The Assessment points out that data analysis tools, such as cryptocurrency tracing and decryption, are of increasing importance in investigating many types of cybercrime, and that increased international cooperation could lead to deconfliction and minimize cases where multiple authorities are chasing the same leads.
