Title: Poland joins Europol’s cyber-crime taskforce

Author: GLOBAL Government FORUM

Date: 04.25.2019

Abstract: Poland has become the latest country to join an international initiative to tackle the growing problem of cyber-crime, such as payment fraud and malware.

Europol, the European Union’s law-enforcement agency headquartered in The Hague, has announced that the country has deployed a cybercrime specialist to its Joint Cybercrime Action Taskforce, known as J-CAT.

The objective of J-CAT, launched in 2014, is to drive “intelligence-led, coordinated action against key cybercrime threats and targets by facilitating the joint identification, prioritisation, preparation and initiation of cross-border investigations and operations by its partners”. It tackles hi-tech crimes including malware and botnets; the facilitation of crimes, for example counter-antivirus services and money laundering; online fraud; and online child sexual exploitation.
