Cyber threat environment has changed enormously in recent times and does so every day. There is no sector that has not been a victim of cyber attacks this year. Even major European and national institutions, the Police itself and big technology companies were affected. Not only has the extent of cybercrime increased but also the diversity of its forms. Attacks can have huge effects. States, institutions, citizens and businesses are equally exposed to this risk.
Improvement is needed on European and national level: one step to combat cybercrime in Europe will be the new European Cybercrime Centre at Europol starting its work in 2013. However, also Member States themselves have to become active.
