Our financial crime analysts work closely with the financial services sector, providing expert analysis and recommendations to support crime detection and prevention. Under the "cybersecurity" umbrella, CCI has two core project partners: Banking & Payments Federation Ireland (BPFI) and the NCSC (National Cyber Security Centre). Projects have included aspects of incident handling, threat monitoring, training & exercise development, digital forensics and systems development. In providing these services, CCI has contributed to bolstering and developing Ireland's national cyber security capabilities and preparedness. Similarly, CCI's relationship with BPFI and the financial sector in general has aided in the fight against cybercrime and fraud and served to raise awareness levels and introduce an academic perspective to information sharing groups.
For over 20 years, CCI has supported government and law enforcement in the fight against cyber and cyber-enabled crime, through a range of capacity building solutions including training, education, forensic tool development and targeted research. To date the Centre has received over €10 million in EU funding to support capacity building for law enforcement. Through this work, CCI has developed strong and well-established collaborative relationships with both public and private entities and has worked with Europol, INTERPOL and the OSCE on delivering solutions to law enforcement units involved in investigating cybercrime. CCI are special advisors to the European Cybercrime Training & Education Group (ECTEG), and in partnership with this group have developed a range of training resources covering all cybercrime areas. We have been fortunate to have worked with a wide range of partners, some of them listed here.
