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
