‘International cyber criminals’ high on crime fighter’s 2017 hit list

International cyber criminals based in Eastern Europe and overseas crime gangs operating from the Americas, Asia and beyond will be a major focus for Australia’s top crime fighting agency – the Australian Criminal Intelligence Commission – next year.

ACIC chief executive Chris Dawson said cyber criminals based out of countries like Ukraine, and “transnational” drug gangs were high on his 2017 hit list.
