Grant agreement no: DG HOME/2013/ISEC/4000005215
Duration: 1 September 2014 – 31 August 2016
The concept of UINFC2 is to facilitate cooperation and coordination among all the major EU stakeholders, National authorities, Law enforcement Agencies (LEA’s) and related bodies through the provision of structured, analyzed, classified and correlated information, in real time, related to cybercrime and online child sexual exploitation. It refers to more than 160 beneficiaries including National reporting and alerting platforms, National Hotlines, members of Safer Internet and INHOPE, National and EU LEA’s, EU and International initiatives such as Global Alliance, existing information exchange platforms, and National and EU Cybercrime Centers of Excellence in Research, Training and Education.
It proposes the design, development and pilot study of a software platform that provides intelligent analysis of collected or maintained data, performs automated monitoring and inspection, as well as produces automatic reports to promote decision making. The main objectives of the project are:
- To build and strengthen the capabilities of Law Enforcement Agencies (LEA’s), asoociations, organizations and EU bodies, including the Global Alliance in order to strategically combat children’s online crimes.
- To assist LEAs in automatically detecting online illegal data from social media, blogs, underground communities etc., and determine investigation priorities.
- To introduce the latest achievements of ICT in data mining, intelligence, correlation, classification, automatic monitoring, decision making, report producing, etc., in combating crimes.
- To facilitate the formal exchange of compiled information produced by the intelligent analysis of online contents, amongst all stakeholders in order to enhance collaboration and effectively counteract crimes.
- To strengthen the mission of the recently founded European Cybercrime Center, by producing strategic reports on crimes’ trends and emerging threats in order to provide comparable statistics among Member States.
