Video: Cybercrime rates in the UAE and collaboration with the Indian government

Brigadier Khalid Nasser Alrazooqi, General Director of Artificial Intelligence, Dubai Police talks about the increasing rates of cybercrime in the UAE as more and more people are becoming active users of social media.

"The number has been increasing year by year", he said. Although most of these crimes have been affecting social media accounts, Dubai Police have been receiving a lot of cases of phone frauds and scams where callers try to extract secure information such as bank details etc. from people.

Dubai Police recently tied up with Kerala Cyberdome and have agreed to share the information about those who are engaged in criminal activities on social media.

Brigadier Khalid was at the Emirates Airline Lit Festival last week, shedding light on the AI initiatives being implemented in the UAE by Dubai Police.
