European Cybercrime centre

Europol’s European Cybercrime Centre (EC3) was set up to strengthen the law enforcement response to cybercrime in the EU and thus to help protect European citizens, businesses, and governments from crime in the digital age. The centre specialises in combatting and preventing online crime within areas including child exploitation, electronic attacks on information systems, identity theft and fraud. EC3 draws on Europol’s existing law-enforcement capacity—but it also expands significantly on other capabilities, in particular by offering operational and analytical support to Member States’ investigations.

Since its establishment, EC3 has made significant and continued contributions to the fight against cybercrime. to find out more about what they do

Ms. Leila Taghizadeh from Euroclear will organize the serious game called 'Cyber Ready' with the participants of the summer school.

'Cyber Ready' is an awareness board game co-developed in and with the European Commission DG Informatics the directorate of IT Security. The aim of the game is to pass specific cyber knowledge from experts to non-experts by creating mixed teams and by employing scenarios. This potentially offers you a good learning method to up-skill the cyber security awareness in both technical and non-technical matters by learning from each other through playing and by creating communities of practice.
