Cybercrime has been extremely profitable over the last two decades. It continues to impact us all as cybercriminal organizations uplevel their game and expand their sophisticated ecosystem. We must tackle this threat collectively through a chain of disruption, in order to effectively mitigate the overall risk we face day-to-day. Every person and organization have a role in this, starting from the SOC and network defenders all the way up to law enforcement. If we don’t address the issue, the problem will simply grow. Fortinet is proud to be one of the founding partners of the World Economic Forum Centre for Cybersecurity, its Partnership against Cybercrime community, and the Cybercrime Atlas Initiative – a first-of-its-kind officially launched in January 2023.

The Cybercrime Atlas represents a significant paradigm shift in how we collectively address the cybercrime challenge. This collaborative platform enables global businesses, national and international law enforcement agencies, cybercrime investigators, and threat intelligence researchers to proactively share knowledge and collate data about cybercriminal activities, the cybercriminal ecosystem, and major threat actors. It also maps criminal activity worldwide and uses open-source research to help organizations understand and disrupt the cybercriminal ecosystem. The Cybercrime Atlas builds a comprehensive picture of the cybercrime landscape, including criminal operations, shared infrastructures, and networks. It will enable the cybersecurity industry to more efficiently allocate resources in the fight against cybercrime, which will serve to make the unlawful efforts of the cybercriminal community increasingly cost-prohibitive.

This panel session will discuss with members of the Cybercrime Atlas, their roles from private sector, NGO and law enforcement. We’ll look ahead at milestones and objectives for 2024 and beyond for this exciting initiative.
