Mobile internet traffic now accounts for more than half of all global online traffic, reaching 51.2% of the world’s total this year. There are now 8.8 billion mobile connections globally, among over 5 billion individual mobile subscribers.

With this proliferation of connections however comes, unfortunately, greatly increased opportunities for cybercrime. Cybercrime is now estimated to cost around $600 billion per year globally, an increase of some $100 billion from 2014, bringing revenues lost to cybercrime to 0.8% of global GDP.

This booklet contains the latest regional developments on Mobile Connect and the digital identity market.
