The following is a brief summary of geographic threats and cybercrime activity throughout 2016 based on law enforcement and industry data. The overview makes use of the United Nations geoscheme to group countries and regions.
For this year’s IOCTA, contributors were requested to highlight which countries presented a particular threat in terms of the criminal activity described in this report. While the comments below summarising these contributions are not assessed to represent a complete intelligence picture, they are judged to be indicative of some general trends in activity relative to those countries and regions. This data does not include self-reporting.
