Alejandro Mayorkas on Crime

 

 


Fighting cybercrime requires international cooperation

According to the FBI, the reported losses tied to cybercrime exceeded $4.1 billion last year alone. The Secret Service arrested more than 1,000 people for cyber-financial crimes and prevented over $2 billion in potential fraud losses. Many of these crimes are transnational in nature and require international cooperation to address. We must align our foreign policy priorities and international partnerships accordingly.

Ransomware now poses a national security threat. Those behind these malicious activities should be held accountable for their actions. That includes governments that do not use the full extent of their authority to stop the culprits. We must condemn them for it and remind them that any responsible government must take steps to prevent or stop such activity. We will do everything we can to prevent and respond to these horrendous acts. And we call on others around the world to do the same.
