A total of 8,271 enrolments in cyber training activities have been reported by CEPOL Cybercrime Academy (CCA) since its official launch in June last year. Up to date, the Academy has delivered 38 training activities, 11 out of which have been offered in 2020.

Agency has put efforts to provide more up to date online training products. The most popular this year have been the three online e-learning modules on the Darknet, on Cybercrime and Cyber-enabled crime –both of them recently updated- and on Online Trade in Illicit Goods and Services. These modules are self-paced training products enabling interested law enforcement officials to design their learning experience at their own pace.

Equally relevant online training offer and in line with CEPOL Digital Strategy are the so-called Cyber bites, a webinar series of micro learning resources helping law enforcement officials keeping pace with the latest technological developments and cybercrime trends. Part of the online offer in 2020 included Cyber bites on the Darkweb, on Intellectual Property, and on Open Source Intelligence applied to Cryptocurrencies, ID search and Social media, among other high in demand products. Additionally, a webinar introducing to Database Forensic incited a great deal of interest with a participation of more than 360 officials this year.

Cybercrime is one of the fastest forms of crime today. CEPOL contributes to develop knowledge and expertise among law enforcement authorities across Europe in addressing this challenge.
