The ECTEG General Assembly brings together European Economic Area Member States, law enforcement agencies, international bodies, academia, private industry and experts.
Funded by the European Commission and working in close cooperation with Europol-EC3 and CEPOL, both members of the advisory group, our activities aims to:
Support international activities to harmonise cybercrime training across international borders.
Share knowledge, expertise and find training solutions.
Promote standardisation of methods and procedures for training programmes and cooperation with other international organisations.
Collaborate with academic partners to establish recognised academic qualification in the field of cybercrime and work with universities that have already created such awards making them available across international borders.
Collaborate with industry partners to establish frameworks whereby their existing and future efforts to support law enforcement by the delivery of training, harmonised into an effective programme that makes best use of available resources.
Provide training and education material and reference trainers to international partners, supporting their efforts to train law enforcement on cybercrime issues globally.
Headquartered in The Hague, the Netherlands, we support the 27 EU Member States in their fight against terrorism, cybercrime and other serious and organised forms of crime. We also work with many non-EU partner states and international organisations.
Large-scale criminal and terrorist networks pose a significant threat to the internal security of the EU and to the safety and livelihood of its people. The biggest security threats come from:
international drug trafficking and money laundering;
the counterfeiting of euros;
trafficking in human beings.
The networks behind the crimes in each of these areas are quick to seize new opportunities, and they are resilient in the face of traditional law enforcement measures.
