Establishment of a European Cybercrime Centre
Type: Archives [short]
Brussels - Belgian Federal Police
The European Commission proposed to establish a European Cybercrime Centre as the focal point in the fight against cybercrime in the EU.
One of the main purposes of the centre would be to help Member States' investigations and to map organised crime online, particularly as regards lucrative online fraud schemes.
The Internet has become an integral and indispensable part of our society and economy. But as more and more of our everyday lives and business transactions happen online, so too does criminal activity.
