Apr 2021 – SOCTA

The EUROPOL Serious and Organised Crime Threat Assessment (SOCTA) for 2021 was released this month. https://www.europol.europa.eu/activities-services/main-reports/european-union-serious-and-organised-crime-threat-assessment

It’s an interesting high level read. The first topic discussed in the section about the main criminal activities is cybercrime which EUROPOL say is on the increase both in terms of the number of attacks but also the sophistication of attacks.
