2020 was a year of unprecedented societal disruption, with COVID-19 lockdowns having a profound effect on the way consumers access goods and services. 

In the UK, online transactions grew 16% year-on-year, as consumers in lockdown increasingly turned to digital channels for everything from banking to grocery shopping. Meanwhile, businesses applied online in their thousands for the Government’s COVID relief packages.  

Along with lockdown came an inevitable increase in the risk of fraud, as opportunistic criminals took advantage of the crisis to target the unsuspecting and vulnerable.
