In general, corruption is a form of dishonesty or criminal activity undertaken by a person or organization entrusted with a position of authority, often to acquire illicit benefit, or, abuse of entrusted power for one's private gain. Corruption may include many activities including bribery and embezzlement, though it may also involve practices that are legal in many countries.Political corruption occurs when an office-holder or other governmental employee acts in an official capacity for personal gain. Corruption is most commonplace in kleptocraciesoligarchiesnarco-states and mafia states.

The effects of corruption are far-reaching: it can undermine political, social and economic stability, and ultimately threaten the safety and security of society as a whole.
Corruption creates a fertile ground for organized criminal activities, even terrorism, as criminals are aided in their illegal activities by the complicity of corrupt public officials.
Economic globalization has made corruption a borderless crime. The competitive world of international business can leave companies exposed to bribes and fraudulent financial practices.
Corrupt transactions can cross multiple jurisdictions, making the ensuing police investigation both time-consuming and complex.


Terrorism is, in the broadest sense, the use of intentional violence, generally against civilians, for political purposes.It is used in this regard primarily to refer to violence during peacetime or in context of war against non-combatants (mostly civilians and neutral military personnel).
The terms "terrorist" and "terrorism" originated during the French Revolution of the late 18th century but gained mainstream popularity in the 1970s in news reports and books covering the conflicts in Northern Ireland, the Basque Country and Palestine. The increased use of suicide attacks from the 1980s onwards was typified by the September 11 attacks in New York City and Washington, D.C. in 2001.
Terrorist networks
Terrorist groups incite individuals, often young people, to leave their communities across the world and travel to conflict zones, primarily in Iraq and Syria and increasingly in Libya. The way recruits are targeted and radicalized has shifted, with a greater focus on social media and other digital channels.
Biometric data is of increasing importance in identifying foreign terrorist fighters and preventing them from crossing borders, while we also promote the exchange of battlefield data between the military and police.
Through INTERPOL, the world’s police can share intelligence and alerts on transnational terrorist networks, to better understand their methods, motives and financing and – ultimately – to identify and arrest suspects.


Terrorist attacks using CBRNE materials − chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear and explosives – could have catastrophic consequences on communities and infrastructure.
We support our member countries in preventing, preparing for and responding to such an attack. This means putting in place prevention and response mechanisms, coordinated among the agencies concerned, including police, customs, border controls, public health professionals, the military, intelligence services and environmental management.
We do this in three ways: through information sharing and intelligence analysis, capacity building and training, and operational suport.

Financial Crime

Financial crime is crime committed against property, involving the unlawful conversion of the ownership of property (belonging to one person) to one's own personal use and benefit. Financial crimes may involve fraud (cheque fraudcredit card fraudmortgage fraudmedical fraud, corporate fraud, securities fraud (including insider trading), bank fraudinsurance fraud, market manipulation, payment (point of sale) fraud, health care fraud); theftscams or confidence trickstax evasionbriberyseductionembezzlementidentity theftmoney laundering; and forgery and counterfeiting, including the production of Counterfeit money and consumer goods.
Financial crimes may involve additional criminal acts, such as computer crimeelder abuseburglaryarmed robbery, and even violent crime such as robbery or murder. Financial crimes may be carried out by individuals, corporations, or by organized crime groups. Victims may include individuals, corporations, governments, and entire economies.

The issues

Theft, fraud, deception, blackmail, corruption, money-laundering… The possibilities for making money illicitly are seemingly endless. To so-called white collar criminals, the risks appear low and the returns high. 
Financial crime ranges from basic theft or fraud committed by ill-intentioned individuals to large-scale operations masterminded by organized criminals with a foot on every continent.  These are serious criminal activities whose importance should not be minimized as, over and beyond their social and economic impact, they are often closely linked to violent crime and even terrorism.
We are all impacted by financial crime which has taken on a whole new dimension with the rapid advancement of digital technology.
Criminal gangs operate transnationally to avoid detection, and stolen funds cross many physical and virtual borders before they reach their final destination. This is where our global police networks play an essential role.


Cybercrime, or computer-oriented crime, is a crime that involves a computer and a network.The computer may have been used in the commission of a crime, or it may be the target.Cybercrimes can be defined as:

"Offences that are committed against individuals or groups of individuals with a criminal motive to intentionally harm the reputation of the victim or cause physical or mental harm, or loss, to the victim directly or indirectly, using modern telecommunication networks such as Internet (networks including chat rooms, emails, notice boards and groups) and mobile phones (Bluetooth/SMS/MMS)".

Cybercrime may threaten a person or a nation's security and financial health.Issues surrounding these types of crimes have become high-profile, particularly those surrounding hackingcopyright infringementunwarranted mass-surveillancesextortionchild pornography, and child grooming
Cyberattacks know no borders and evolve at a fast pace while the Internet also facilitates a range of more traditional crim.

The issues

Hacking. Malware. Botnets. The Darknet. Cybercrime as a service.
Words and phrases that scarcely existed a decade ago are now part of our everyday language, as criminals use new technologies to commit cyberattacks against governments, businesses and individuals. These crimes know no borders, either physical or virtual, cause serious harm and pose very real threats to victims worldwide.

‘Pure cybercrime’ refers to crimes against computers and information systems, where the aim is to gain unauthorized access to a device or deny access to a legitimate user.
Traditional forms of crime have also evolved as criminal organizations turn increasingly to the Internet to facilitate their activities and maximize their profit in the shortest time.

 These ‘cyber-enabled’ crimes are not necessarily new – such as theft, fraud, illegal gambling, the sale of fake medicines – but they have taken on a new online dimension.
Cybercrime is progressing at an incredibly fast pace, with new trends constantly emerging. Police must therefore keep pace with new technologies, to understand the possibilities they create for criminals and how they can be used as tools for fighting cybercrime.
