Defining the Commission’s Global Policy on the Fight Against Cyber Crime

The European Commission has adopted the Communication "Towards a general policy on the fight against cyber crime"

The European Commission has adopted the Communication "Towards a general policy on the fight against cyber crime". Specific actions to improve coordination and cooperation between law enforcement authorities and between law enforcement and private sector operators will play an important role in the fight against cyber crime, and complement other actions taken at national, European and international level.

The European Commission is ideally placed to coordinate this policy, in close cooperation with Member States and other international organisations. The main short term objectives are:

  • To improve and facilitate coordination and cooperation between cyber crime units, other relevant authorities and other experts in the European Union;
  • To develop a coherent EU policy framework on the fight against cyber crime;
  • To raise awareness of costs and dangers posed by cyber crime.
