CYBERA Awarded 2024 Technology Pioneer by World Economic Forum

Cybercrime is low risk, low investment, and high return. Not surprisingly, illegal financial gain is one of the biggest reasons for cyber-attacks. The result is a predicted USD 10 Trillion of damages by 2025. Our vision is to change that.

New York, NY [June 6, 2024] — CYBERA, a leading provider of advanced reporting and prevention tools to combat scams and fraud, has been honored with the prestigious Technology Pioneer award by the World Economic Forum.

Additionally, their platform for scam victim support and asset recovery has led to millions in funds being frozen and returned to their rightful owners.

The company has earned a reputation for excellence, supported by testimonials from trusted financial institutions, leading cryptocurrency exchanges, non-profit partners, and law enforcement. These endorsements highlight CYBERA’s pivotal role in enhancing information sharing to prevent fraud and improve asset recovery outcomes.
