Thales granted license to hunt down cyber criminals


Thales is adding criminal investigations to the range of cyber services and solutions it provides, after being granted a license to conduct digital fraud investigations in the Netherlands.

The need for legally valid criminal investigations is growing in line with cybercrime. Thales forensics specialists can now help organisations seek justice and obtain results, by leveraging their renowned cyber expertise and international network of experts.

In its 2020 CyberThreat Handbook , Thales’ cybersecurity experts put the spotlight on rising cybercrime, positing that this is one of the most dangerous threats companies, organisations and institutions face today. The United Nations estimates that cybercrime will cost the global economy around $5.2 trillion between 2020 and 2025.
