Europol and Eurojust published on 5 July a report categorising the current developments and challenges in combating cybercrime.

The trends are divided in five categories – the loss of data and location, challenges associated with national legal frameworks, obstacles to international cooperation, and challenges of public-private partnerships.

As cybercrime is borderless by nature, international measures are required to address the current challenges, the report concludes, and adds that since the publication of the last report in 2017, significant progress has been made, especially in enhanced cooperation between authorities and providing networks for sharing knowledge, like the European Judicial Cybercrime Network and the Joint Cybercrime Action Taskforce.
