Norway and Switzerland Join J-CAT
In April 2018, Norway and Switzerland were unanimously accepted as members of the Joint Cybercrime Action Taskforce (J-CAT), which is hosted as part of Europol’s European Cybercrime Centre (EC3). The taskforce aims at enhancing cooperation between law enforcement authorities, at driving intelligence-led, coordinated actions against major cybercrime threats, and at facilitating cross-border investigations by its partners. It is comprised of cyber liaison officers from 13 EU Member States and non-EU partners and 15 law enforcement agencies. Due to their new membership, Norway and Switzerland will now also deploy cyber liaison officers to J-CAT.
