The objective of this document is to identify and categorise the common challenges in combating cybercrime from both a law enforcement and a judicial perspective. Eurojust and Europol’s European Cybercrime Centre (EC3) have identified the challenges based on and informed by operational and practical experience, joint deliberations and expert input. Other sources used include final reports of several thematic and strategic meetings with national experts and relevant stakeholders, strategic reports and assessments such as Europol’s EC3’s Internet Organised Crime Threat Assessment (IOCTA), as well as various open sources. Despite the availability of information, both in- and external, on the obstacles, the discussion can certainly benefit from more extensive (and broader) research and a closer comparison of existing legislation at national and international levels.
