The Cybercrime Investigation project furthered the work of the European Cybercrime Training and Education Group (ECTEG) in developing and delivering solutions for law enforcement staff from EU countries and applicant countries. The training offered an opportunity to receive a formal qualification – university accredited training and education – designed to enhance skills for combating cybercrime.
The project developed and delivered three new courses on malware investigations, forensic scripting, and live data forensics. Some 60 staff from EU law enforcement agencies’ cybercrime units attended the pilot of the new courses.
A further 20 law enforcement officers from EU countries’ cybercrime units were awarded a full Masters Degree in Forensic Computing and Cybercrime Investigation from the University College Dublin. Course material developed during the project is freely available to law enforcement units through ECTEG.
In addition to gaining knowledge, skills and formal qualifications, the participants now belong to a community network that provides a platform for technical and investigative support.
