The course on ‘Threats of cybercrime – challenges of financial investigations’ was organised by the European Union Agency for Law Enforcement Training (CEPOL) within the framework of the capacity building project Western Balkans Financial Investigation In-Service Training 2017-2019 (FI Project)[1]. The training took place in Budapest, Hungary from 21-25 January 2019.

The objectives of the training were:

  • To gain and enhance understanding of connection between cyber-crime and its financial crime impacts
  • To acknowledge cooperation possibilities and identify practical and legal challenges
  • To identify and enhance knowledge about tools and techniques of gathering and analysing financial intelligence related to cyber-crime offences
  • To discuss various ways of converting intelligence into evidence

The course brought together 42 law enforcement officials from 17 EU Member States and 6 Western Balkan countries. The training hosted 10 experts as trainers from different EU countries, Academy and private sector who presented case studies from Romania, Germany, Hungary, the UK and France. Representatives from eBay and PayPal provided valuable insight in their work and cases.

The next training within the project on 'International cooperation in relation to money laundering and terrorism financing’ is going to take place in Belgrade, Serbia from 4 to 8 February 2019 for national law enforcement officials.
