Europol Podcasts Launched
On 1 August 2022, Europol launched the first episode of a new series called The Europol Podcast. In this podcast series, contributors from Europol and law enforcement around the world talk about some of the most high-profile operations that Europol has been involved in. Each podcast focuses on another area of crime, from cybercrime, to organised crime, to financial crime and more.
The first episode is dedicated to the protection of vulnerable children, outlining the take-down of the online platform Boytown. Further podcasts already available for listening present Operation Greenlight and its Action Day - one of the largest international law enforcement operations to date dealing with encrypted networks. The fourth podcast describes the take-down of the so-called “King of Malware”, one of the most dangerous botnets of the last decades. Catching cocaine traffickers is the subject of the fifth podcast. The sixth looks at the fight against models that offer ransomware as a service.
