WithSecure co-founds CYBERSPACE project to counter cybercrime in Europe

WithSecure , formerly known as F- Secure Business , and 10 other European organisations have co-founded the CYBERSPACE project . The project is a three-year initiative funded by the European Commission to support European law enforcement agencies and improve their capacity to investigate and counter cybercrime .

The project begins at a time when cybercrime is becoming an increasingly pressing concern in Europe . Europe experienced more security incidents in 2021 than the year before , according to the European Union Agency for Cybersecurity ( ENISA ), with particularly significant threats that have a direct impact on networks , systems and people within the EU experiencing a constant increase .
The trend is a notable challenge for Europe : The EU ’ s Cybersecurity Strategy for the Digital Decade outlines a number of ways that cyberthreats can undermine the EU ’ s economy , democracy and society , such as discouraging people from using digital services or compromising critical infrastructure .
“ Europe ’ s investing heavily in digitalisation , and policy makers recognise security ’ s important role in ensuring these investments pay off ,” said Dr Holger Nitsch , Project Coordinator and Head of Research and
Social Science for the Bavarian Police Academy . “ But information , resources and expertise to counter cyberthreats are spread thin and difficult to mobilise when needed . Different organisations in different countries often have different pieces of the same puzzle , which makes it difficult for any single entity to see the big picture when investigating security incidents and criminal activities that span multiple countries .”
