Mongolia records 7,560 cyber crimes in 2024

AKIPRESS.COM – The Cyber Security Council of Mongolia held a meeting, according to deputy chairman of the council and Minister of Digital Development and Communication N.Uchral, GoGo reported.

“The number of internet users in our country is increasing year by year, and the number of cyber crimes is also increasing. For instance, 7,560 cyber crimes have been registered in 2024. 83% of them are cyber frauds,” the deputy chairman said.

The Council discussed the reports that the information of Mongolian citizens was sold on the black market in the global cyber environment in 2020 and 2021. According to reports, 2.3 million citizens’ information, including surnames, telephone numbers, and home addresses, was sold for $700. It was reported that this information is being sold in crypto or coin in 2022.

Information about human health and other sensitive topics has also been sold on the black market.

“The problem we’re facing is how to deal with invisible thiefs. Personal information is received through malicious code. Also there were cases of commercial banks losing data in 2020, and legal authorities took action,” the Minister noted.

At today’s meeting, a working group was established to compensate the citizens.
