VELKOMMEN NORWAY AND WILKOMMEN SWITZERLAND - TWO NEW COUNTRIES JOIN THE JOINT CYBERCRIME ACTION TASK
Launched in September 2014, the J-CAT (Joint Cybercrime Action Taskforce) is dedicated to fighting international cybercrime threats within the EU and beyond in a pro-active manner.
The Taskforce is hosted within Europol’s European Cybercrime Centre (EC3) and comprises cyber liaison officers from 13 EU Member States and non-EU partners and 15 law enforcement agencies.
Further to the two-year review of the J-CAT’s activities and multiple operational successes, its mandate was extended indefinitely in October 2017.
The J-CAT’s objective is to boost the cooperation between law enforcement authorities, drive intelligence-led, coordinated actions against the major cybercrime threats and facilitate cross-border investigations by its partners.
Cybercrime has no borders and the fight against it shouldn’t either.
