Dear all,

For your information here is the link to the EC press release on the
proposal of establishing a cyber-crime centre which will co-ordinate
Europe's fight against online crimes.

The European Commission proposed on March 28, 2012 to establish a European
Cybercrime Centre   within the European Police Office, Europol in The Hague
(The Netherlands).   The centre will be the European focal point in
fighting cybercrime and will focus on illegal online activities carried
out by organised crime groups, particularly those generating large criminal
profits, such as online fraud involving credit cards and bank credentials.
The EU experts will also work on preventing cybercrimes affecting e-banking
and online booking activities, thus increasing e-consumers trust. A focus
of the European Cybercrime Centre will be to protect social network
profiles from e-crime infiltration and will help the fight against online
identity theft. It will also focus on cybercrimes which cause serious harm
to their victims, such as online child sexual exploitation and
cyber-attacks affecting critical infrastructure and information systems in
the Union.
