Cybercrime is a complex form of crime that is developing fast, with anyone being a potential victim of such attacks. The key areas in the fight against cybercrime are prevention, protection against attacks and, if a crime has already taken place, efficient investigation and recovery from the attack. This wide range of tasks requires good cooperation and information sharing, as well as the latest technology and continuously developed competence.

In addition, national awareness of cybercrime is increased so that the needs and wishes of users are the key element when planning the training.
