The European Police Office, commonly referred as the EUROPOL, is a law enforcement agency that deals with serious international crimes and terrorism. EUROPOL mainly focuses on assisting the EU members on issues that are likely to damage internal security such as people smuggling, terrorism and cyber crimes. The aim of the organization is to maintain the livelihood and the safety of the EU citizens and the global platform respectively. EUROPOL, headquartered in The Hague-Netherlands, became one of the organs of the EU in 2010. The agency consists of five operations departments, one of them being the European Cyber Crime Center (EC3). EC3 was set in 2013 in order to protect the European citizens, governments and businesses from online crimes. Since its establishment, which is a very short period of time, EC3 has accomplished remarkable works in 20 high-profile and more than 200 operations. Focusing mostly on important international cyber crime cases, EC3 also expands its working area by providing special operational and analytical support groups to 28 EU Member States.
