Emerging trends in digital crime in Africa


Online crime presents a bigger security risk for law enforcement in Africa than ever before. As digital access has increased across the continent, organised crime groups have turned to the Internet to conduct their illicit business. This webinar examines the latest trends and the wide availability of cyber tools that enable organised crime groups to commit a range of crimes. It will provide an overview of online criminal activities in Africa, focusing on digital vigilantism and the illicit wildlife trade.
