英国国家打击犯罪调查局(National Crime Agency)警告,相关商务及执法部门在打击网络罪犯中处于劣势,因为网络犯罪团伙的技术实力在不断赶超相关部门处理这类威胁的能力。请听 Sangita Mysta 的报道。

According to the National Crime Agency, a key threat to the UK comes from a few hundred international criminal gangs. It says some operate well-developed networks that run call centres and employ translators to help commit crime on a massive scale.

Official figures, the report says, suggest there were 2.46 million so-called cyber incidents last year, of which over 700,000 were reported as fraud.

The NCA says the true scale of criminality is likely to be far bigger because of what it calls a serious problem of under-reporting.
