The UK’s Police Central e-crime Unit (PCeU) has released its final “Financial Harm Reduction and Performance Report” – a breakdown of the cybercrime cases the unit has investigated, and how much money has been kept out of the hands of cybercrooks by their investigations.
The headline figures boast of an epic total of £1.01 billion (approx €1.2 billion, or $1.6 billion) over the last two-and-a-half years.
The PCeU is run by the London Metropolitan Police but, through several regional “hubs”, covers the whole of the UK for much of its cybercrime policing needs, alongside the “Cyber Unit” of the Serious Organised Crime Agency (SOCA).
