The Support Team is trained in matters of cyber law, digital security, and psychological support. It includes a qualified psychologist, digital security expert and trained lawyer, all of whom provide specialized assistance when needed.

AIMS & OBJECTIVES

The objectives of the Cyber Helpline are to provide the public with a reliable and convenient reporting mechanism to submit information to the Local Police concerning suspected Internet-facilitated criminal activity and to develop effective alliances with law enforcement and industry partners. Information is analyzed and disseminated for investigative and intelligence purposes to law enforcement and for public awareness.

SCOPE OF THE PROJECT

While fighting cybercrime is of primary responsibility of law enforcement authorities, the role of the private sector should not be underestimated given the highly technical nature of this phenomenon and the necessity to develop a fast and effective response.
Cybercriminals are substantially motivated by profit, and in particular financial profit. As for any legitimate business, they conduct cost/benefit analyses. As a result, their activities ignore legal boundaries between criminal law and civil law, and therefore fall under the remit of law enforcement agencies as well as other public authorities, mainly those in charge of protecting consumers and personal data.
