Cybercriminals are adopting creative new techniques to target their victims at an unprecedented pace and are constantly seeking methods to avoid law enforcement detection. To stay ahead of them, law enforcement should target cybercriminals offering “off-the-shelf” cyber-attack services or products to make it more difficult for low-level cybercriminals to carry out high-level attacks.

Europol’s fifth annual Internet Organised Crime Threat Assessment (IOCTA), offers a unique law enforcement view of the emerging threats and key developments in the field of cybercrime over the last year. But more than that, it describes anticipated future threats and provides recommendations to law enforcement authorities in Europe to adequately deal with these challenges.
