Cybercrime consultant and influencer Neira Jones joins Market Planning Director, and author of the LexisNexis® Risk Solutions Cybercrime Report, Rebekah Moody, for a fireside chat to discuss insights and trends revealed by the latest Cybercrime report, covering the second half of 2020.

The LexisNexis® Risk Solutions Cybercrime Report is based on cybercrime attacks detected by the LexisNexis® Digital Identity Network® (the Digital Identity Network) from July – December 2020, during near real-time analysis of consumer interactions across the online journey, from new account creations, logins, payments and other non-core transactions such as password resets and transfers. ​

The Digital Identity Network helps businesses to make near-real-time fraud and risk decisions that harness global shared intelligence from thousands of global digital businesses, across millions of daily transactions, and billions of data points. A collaborative network that consistently and reliably identifies online users, even as fraudsters pivot across different attack patterns, industries and global geographies.

In a detailed and wide-ranging discussion, the fraud and cybercrime experts explore what this latest edition of the long-running report tells us about the constantly shifting global fraud and cybercrime patterns and behaviours:

  • The surprising contrast between UK and global automated Bot attack volumes and what makes the UK so different?
  • The revelation of which UK age group is most susceptible to online fraud – in contrast to assumed wisdom – and which stands to lose the most money. Rebekah explains the ‘curve of vulnerability’ that the figures describe.
  • The channels and devices most susceptible to fraud attacks and how firms can layer defences to help prevent them.
  • The key points of vulnerability for digital banking services – where are fraudsters most likely to capitalise?
  • The single biggest cyber threat to face public and private sector organisations today and why stopping them should be a fundamental priority for all organisations.
  • The latest fraud trends plaguing the financial services sector including romance scams, pandemic-themed fraud and money mules.
  • An answer to the question “is there light at the end of the tunnel?” in the battle against cybercrime and online fraud.
