Get Access to the World’s Largest Collection of Cybercrimes

///Get Access to the World’s Largest Collection of Cybercrimes

Cybercrime is a problem that has become increasingly dangerous and evolved. With that in mind, the UN has developed the Cybercrime Repository as a way to strengthen international cooperation in the fight against cybercrime.

Currently, the repository is the only tool worldwide available to file laws, cases and cybercrime practices in a database available for research. The information is divided into topics such as global cybernetic investigations, solicitation of stored traffic data, as well as incidents and real-time traffic collections.

According to Loide Lungamenti, head of the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), the repository facilitates international cooperation by helping authorities to identify applicable crime laws elsewhere.

Lungamenti also claims that more than 80% of cybercrimes work as a form of organized activity, such as creating malware that requires cash value for the retrieval of personal information. And the danger is not only in computers and mobile devices but also in IoT (Internet of Things) devices, so all care and prevention are not enough.

Guiding the authorities correctly, the repository will allow the identification of future crimes based on those that have already occurred. Thus, it will be easier to know how to act and the right decisions to make when it comes to being prevented.

The Repository can be accessed here.

    Great article and very helpful source of information. As an IT professional, I can relate with the importance of the information shared in this article. The organizers of such a database are to be lauded for their efforts. With the great leaps in digital technology experienced in this century, and the many applications both good and bad, one cannot overlook the importance of such a database. It is a fact that malware and virus attacks have increased tenfold this year as compared to the past. With the entry of the ransom-ware menace, it is clear that proper application of digital technology is of a paramount importance and nations should be ready and be prepared to deal with such negative application of digital technology. However, it also poses a big question that has raised an endless debate in the past, “should the internet be regulated and by whom?”

    It is estimated that the economic impact of cybercrime is about USD $ 3 trillion worldwide, a figure even higher than that of drug trafficking (USD $ 1 trillion). This was confirmed in an interview granted to Dinero by the expert in cybercrime of the international firm Digiware, Andrés Galindo, who explained that the ‘hackers’ no longer work alone but are now part of large criminal organizations. The representative of Digiware cited several studies to affirm that 50% of the bands dedicated to cybercrime are composed of 6 or more people. Of these, 76% are men, whose ages range from 14 years (8%) to 50 (11%). Although the average age of this type of criminals is 35 years (43%). It’s good to know that there are international organizations that are taking care about this problem. Good and interesting article!
