Report on Investigating Cybercrime Related Services

June 20, 2024
CYCLOPES: Fighting Cybercrime – Law Enforcement Practitioners' Network

This report highlights findings from the LEA practitioner workshop held on November 29-30, 2023 in Madrid, Spain.

The practitioner workshop focused on the investigation of cybercrime affecting systems and networks, which are committed through the use of online devices, such as a computer, computer networks or other forms of information communications technology (ICT). These online devices are both the tool for committing the crime, and the target of the crime; for example, generating and spreading malware for financial gain and hacking to compromise data, computer networks or activity.

Cyber-attacks are challenging to investigate and often consist of multiple steps, with multiple threat actors, working on different parts of the ‘crime-as-a-service’ process. Law Enforcement Agencies (LEA) need to work with individuals, public and private sector organisations to secure and recover evidence to support judicial proceedings, however this can often be challenging due to the complex nature of cyber-attacks and the skills and experience of IT professionals and LEA specialist practitioners.
