In 2014 the TOT Project was funded by the European Union and managed by the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid, to improve efficiency, cooperation and mutual understanding of the main actors involved in the fight against cybercrime: LEAs and Prosecutors. One of the goals was to create a framework for the certification for European Cybercrime Investigators and Cybercrime European Prosecutors to establish the basis for the development of a group of professionals with the ability to deal properly with transnational problems of cybercrime.
Now, the Global Cybercrime Certification Project funded by ECTEG provides an opportunity to implement the work done in the TOT Project creating an international certification framework based on the Training Competency Framework for Cybercrime to enable Law Enforcement Agents and Judicial Authorities to develop their knowledge and skills and to enhance confidence within the criminal justice system of their jurisdiction as well as international investigations.
The two main objectives of this project are to seek sustainability of this certification system as well as to deploy different certification pilots for LEAS and Judicial Authorities.
The package will be piloted in partnership with several national organisations before being validated by ECTEG, Europol and CEPOL.
