In 2020, cyberattacks cost the global economy €5.5 trillion. They also eroded public trust in institutions and put stress on millions of lives. Despite these threats, most law enforcement agencies and European countries lack the proper systems to track and respond to cybercrime in a timely manner.
As many cyberattacks go unreported, CYBERSPACE will leverage comprehensive research in order to provide policymakers, law enforcement agencies and the private sector with a more thorough understanding of cyberattacks and cybercrime in the EU.
Insights will be used to develop investigative tools, improve information sharing, and better detection, response and prevention of cybercrime by:
Trilateral works to develop policy recommendations for a variety of stakeholders, including businesses, policymakers and judicial authorities, including responses to state sponsored attacks. Trilateral also assesses the ethical, legal and data protection risks in order to successfully ensure the CYBERSPACE project and all policy considerations value privacy as well as social and ethical considerations.
Trilateral leads on enhancing project findings and the developing of a comprehensive network of stakeholders, including law enforcement agencies, SME associations, academics and the media. This work will be fostered through communication and dissemination activities and encourage open and collaborative conversation across borders, to facilitate more thorough and inclusive responses to cybercrime.
