Council of Europe and European Commission organise regional cyber training for East and South-East European countries

March 4, 2022

In the light of current events around the war in Ukraine, strengthening capacities on cybercrime and cybersecurity is more important than ever. The Council of Europe Cybercrime Programme Office (C-PROC) and the European Commission are organising a regional cyber training involving co-operation between the cybersecurity community and law enforcement agencies.

The activity will take place on 7-11 March in Athens (Greece) and will focus on handling and investigating a malware attack orchestrated by a criminal group. It will bring together fifty participants from eleven countries/areas, including from Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, and the Republic of Moldova.

The training is organised in the framework of the ‘CyberEast: Action on Cybercrime for Cyber Resilience in the Eastern Partnership Region’ project and the ‘iPROCEEDS-2: Targeting Crime Proceeds on the Internet and Securing Electronic Evidence in South-East Europe and Turkey’ project, in partnership with the Cybersecurity East project, funded by the European Union.
