On 30 September – 2 October 2015 the 3rd Europol-Interpol Cybercrime Conference was held at Europol’s European Cybercrime Centre (The Hague, Netherlands). Traditionally, the Conference was organized by Europol and Interpol.
The three-day event brought together the top-executives of cybercrime units from around the world in order to further strengthen their cooperation. Building upon the success of previous years, some 350 experts are expected to convene in The Hague to discuss the latest cybercrime threats and trends, as well as the practical aspects of recent cybercrime cases.
In 2015, the agenda was structured around the following topics:
• Recent cybercrime threats;
• Building capabilities to fight cybercrime;
• International operational cooperation frameworks;
• Cyber security;
• Fighting the abuse of virtual currencies;
• Outcome of the Global Conference on Cyber Space (GCCS) 2015 for law enforcement;
• Alignment and coordination of innovation and R&D;
• Cybercrime evolution in Africa;
• Cybercrime cases / operational lessons learnt.
The first two days of the conference were open to representatives from all sectors, whilst the final day was restricted to law enforcement only.
The Europol-Interpol Cybercrime Conference is an innovative joint initiative that was first held in 2013. It is hosted alternatively by the Europol’s European Cybercrime Centre in The Hague and the INTERPOL Global Complex for Innovation in Singapore.
