The ENFORCE project aims at designing, setting-up, and disseminating a cybercrime training curriculum at the European level. This curriculum will be validated during a training exercise allowing different European public (e.g. law enforcement agencies and CSIRTs) and private actors fighting cybercrime to train together using state-of-the-art training technology.
Enhancing the skills of Cybercrime Fighters in a context of Rapid Technology Changes
About the project
The training course development and validation will be facilitated by BLUECYFORCE, a cybersecurity training center located in Paris.
The ENFORCE training programme will allow cybercrime practitioners to upgrade their skills and expertise in a collaborative way, to better understand the nature of the threat in a context of fast-paced digitalisation, and to make the best of state-of-the-art technology to support their work.
ENFORCE will support the EU-wide collaboration and the exchange of best practices. The project will also contribute to the effort of EU and national actors to propose standardized training materials for the European law enforcement community.
ENFORCE is an 18 month European project co-funded by the European Commission in the framework of the Internal Security Fund - Police. The project runs from December 2018 to May 2020.
The ENFORCE project seeks to engage with the European community of actors involved in the fight of cybercrime. Cybercrime experts from different Member States and organizations will be invited to attend a series of workshops organized throughout the project and, eventually, to take part in the course validation exercise.
By establishing a close and effective collaboration with European law enforcement agencies, ENFORCE ensures that the requirements addressed by its training curriculum will address the needs of these actors.
By taking part in the ENFORCE activities, cybercrime practitioners will be able to
- Learn by doing with the objective to improve their operational preparedness & skills
- Share common training needs, and exchange best practices and knowledge with other Member States and organisations
- Foster future operational and training collaboration
