The European Cybercrime Centre (EC3) will be inaugurated on 11 January 2013 at the Europol Headquarters in The Hague, the Netherlands.
On this occasion, the European Commission's Audiovisual Services have produced a short video stockshot showing the interior and technical aspects of the Centre. It also contains statements from various officials.
The European Cybercrime Centre will protect Europeans and businesses against mounting cyber-threats. It will focus on illegal online activities carried out by organised crime groups, especially attacks targeting e-banking and other online financial activities. The Centre will also seek to find ways to better protect social network profiles from e-crime infiltration and provide information and analysis to national law enforcement authorities. This will enable them to assist in the fight against online identity theft, child sexual abuse and exploitation and cyber-attacks affecting critical infrastructure and information systems in Europe.
