News Summary: EU police unit tackling cybercrime


CYBERCOPS: The European Union's police coordination agency opened a new cybercrime unit, the European Cybercrime Centre, to combat online offenses from banking fraud to peddling images of child sex abuse.

VIRTUAL BEATS: Europol is fighting cybercrime with experts huddled around computer screens in blue-lit "labs," monitoring Internet traffic and able to retrieve data users believe they have deleted from their cellphones or computer hard drives.

HOPPING ON HACKERS: European Home Affairs Commissioner Cecilia Malmstrom concedes the unit, housed in Europol's Hague headquarters, will be playing catch-up with organized crime gangs in a "Golden Age" of cybercrime.
