EU to establish cybercrime agency

EU ministers have asked the European Commission to assess whether it should set up a centralised agency on tackling cybercrime to prevent online fraud and child pornography.On Monday (27 April) EU ministers meeting in Luxembourg asked the European Commission to “assess the feasibility” of setting up a single centre on cybercrime to pool member states’ efforts and resources to fight Internet crime.In the past, the biggest opponents of a centralised EU body on cybercrime have been the UK, Germany and France, who feared an EU agency would tread on the toes of operations already underway in their own countries.
