CyAN joins Europol Cybercrime Centre (EC3) Advisory Group on Communication Providers

Dr Gergely Dzsinich has successfully applied as member, representing CyAN, of the Europol Cybercrime Centre (EC3) Advisory Group on Communication Providers.

In 2013 the Programme Board of Europol’s European Cybercrime Centre (EC3) had identified the need for establishing Advisory Groups to provide guidance to EC3. In 2013, Advisory Groups were established in the areas of Financial Services and Internet Security. The members were recruited from experts operating in these respective sectors. In 2015, it was decided to establish a third group, focussed on cooperation between law enforcement and Communication Providers, aiming to gather representatives of Internet Service Providers and Telecom Services (including Mobile Operators).

This membership starts on 1 July 2016 for an initial term of 2 years, with a kick-off meeting on 9th September 2016. The Terms of Reference of this Advisory Group can be found here.
