Global Cybercrime Certification Project
The Global Cybercrime Certification Project was funded in 2014 by the European Union and managed by the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid, to improve efficiency, cooperation and mutual understanding of the main actors involved in the fight against cybercrime: LEAs and Prosecutors. One of the goals was to create a framework for the certification for European Cybercrime Investigators and Cybercrime European Prosecutors to establish the basis for the development of a group of professionals with the ability to deal properly with transnational problems of cybercrime.
The GCC team is composed by the following partners:
- University College Dublin (Ireland)
- Albstadt-Sigmaringen University (Germany)
- Neuroscience and Technology Institute (Cyprus)
- Guardia Civil (Spain)
They will be assisted in their work by whichever LEA or prosecutors office or judiciary body wants to contribute on a regular basis, as for example the Guardia Civil, and the Office for Combating Cybercrime of Cyprus Police.
Cyprus joined on the 23rd March 2017 in a special agreement with the European Cybercrime Training and Education Group (ECTEG).
