CYBERA, CEX.IO Partnership Reaches Milestone in Fraud Prevention and Crypto Asset Recovery
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.
The collaboration’s proactive and reactive measures have assisted over 100 users in documenting fraud, and liaising with law enforcement to better secure the crypto ecosystem.
[New York, NY] December 5, 2023 CYBERA Global Inc. a leading provider of advanced reporting and prevention tools to combat scams and fraud today announced the success of their partnership with CEX.IO, a global ecosystem of products and services that connects curious participants to the cryptocurrency economy and decentralized finance (DeFi), disrupting cyber criminals and protecting DeFi customers.
In a single quarter, the two companies have aided and assisted over 100 affected users targeted by bad actors. Along with meticulously documenting each occurrence to ensure proper downstream litigation, the partnering entities work closely with law enforcement to share information, and stymie repeat offenders. So far, the collaboration has successfully escalated 95% of cases to the proper authorities, with 30% resulting in account freezes or other crucial steps toward asset recovery.
Through a growing cache of incident reports, CYBERA’s suspect database is compiled through its network of partnerships, where CEX.IO serves as a critical node. These records become essential resources for officials to pinpoint and prosecute offenders, a sometimes necessary step in asset recovery.
“Our AI-enhanced platform integrates seamlessly with partnering exchanges to offer user support, and help prepare the materials necessary for seeking justice,” said Claudio Staub, CRO and Co-Founder of CYBERA. “As we react to remedy the negative effects of fraud, each datapoint strengthens our internal network to proactively prevent additional users from falling victim.”
Nurturing a safe community requires rooting out fraud, and CYBERA reinforces and expands on our capacity to achieve these efforts,” said Mark Taylor, Global MLRO and Head of Financial Crime at CEX.IO. “In our brief collaboration, we’ve provided critical resources to victims seeking justice and recompense, while making significant strides to dissuade future, would-be criminals.”
Although still in its infancy, the partnership’s initial results reveal that a more secure ecosystem through CYBERA and its industry collaborators could be on the horizon. Continued growth and cooperation will serve to reinvigorate trust among global participants, and offer greater peace of mind while transacting in the digital economy.
“Where CEX.IO serves as a bridge to the crypto ecosystem, CYBERA is that extra guardrail along the edge. And in our line of work, you can never be too safe,” Taylor added.
