The APWG, established in 2003 as the Anti-Phishing Working Group, is an industry association focused on unifying the global response to cybercrime. The organization provides a forum for responders and managers of cybercrime to discuss phishing and cybercrime issues, to consider potential technology solutions, to access data logistics resources for cybersecurity applications, to cultivate the university research community dedicated to cybercrime, and to advise government, industry, law enforcement and treaty organizations on the nature of cybercrime.
In 2018 the Anti-Phishing Working Group launched theAPWG Crypto Currency Working Group (APWG CCWG) to help users of cryptocurrency exchanges, wallets, trading platforms and investment funds protect themselves and their customers against phishing and cybercrime.
