Our current initiatives in cybercrime revolve around the three areas outlined below.

While effective law enforcement is an essential component to fighting cyberthreats, we also recognize the importance of engaging all stakeholders – from the private sector, academia and public institutions –who are working towards the common goal of a safer cyberspace.

It is important to harmonize efforts across different sectors in order to share expertise while avoiding duplication of activities already in progress. In this way, police may efficiently focus their resources on fighting cybercrime, as we work with other stakeholders to develop a holistic and coordinated response.

By encouraging the creation of dedicated cybercrime investigation units, and updating legal frameworks, INTERPOL will build a proactive facilitation role in fighting cybercrime.

The main services of the harmonization include:

  • National cyber review – a comprehensive audit of national legislation, police infrastructure and technical capacity, with accompanying recommendations;
  • Cyber security strategy development – working with regulatory bodies to develop global strategies as well as advising individual countries on their national approach;
  • International advocacy on cyber legislation and governance – representing the law enforcement perspective in the development of new and updated legislation;
  • Research and innovation – combining police research with similar activities in other sectors.
