Supporting Victims of Cybercrime
On 17 and 18 June 2021, the 10th Plenary Meeting of the European Judicial Cybercrime Network (EJCN) took place to discuss the latest trends in cybercrime and to lend support to victims of malware. The online meeting, which was hosted by Eurojust, focused on approaches to support victims of cybercrime, e.g., victim remediation. Experts also discussed how to improve investigations into large-scale online fraud schemes, which increased significantly during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The EJCN is a forum that brings together judicial practitioners specialised in countering the challenges of cybercrime, cyber-enabled crime, and investigations in cyberspace. It was established in 2016 and is hosted by Eurojust.
