ThreatMetrix and LexisNexis Risk Solutions reveal findings in new report

Thursday 27 June 2019 | 12:23 PM CET

ThreatMetrix and LexisNexis Risk Solutions have launched the ThreatMetrix Q1 2019 EMEA Cybercrime Report at the EMEA Digital Identity Summit 2019.

The report are based on actual cyberattacks detected by the ThreatMetrix Digital Identity Network during Q1 of 2019. Some of the findings from ThreatMetrix’s report show:

  • EMEA represents a less risky online environment, compared to the rest of the world, despite pockets of growing attack rates for some industries and use cases;

  • Top attackers in the region are targeting growth and emerging economies, like Poland and the Ukraine, highlighting the continued widespread dissemination of breached identity data;

  • The UK's digital economy is driving higher use of mobile devices and lower attack rates.

Also, the report reveals that EMEA is one of the most mobile regions in the world, with 71% of transactions originating from a mobile device, compared to 55% globally. However, astute fraudsters are aligning with changing consumer behaviour, as more malicious actors are turning their attention to the mobile channel. The ThreatMetrix Q1 2019 EMEA Cybercrime Report shows a 41% year-on-year increase in the region on new account creation attacks through mobile media channels.
