Cybersecurity is the protection of internet-connected systems such as hardware, software and data from cyber-threats. The practice is used by individuals and enterprises to protect against unauthorised access to data centres and other computerised systems. Cyberattacks are an ever-growing threat to government infrastructure and data warehouses. This entailed assaults on physical infrastructure, theft of data and identities, and disruptions in work. Failing to plan for cyber threats as part of emergency management procedures is detrimental the security of European citizens.

What do we do?

Since october 2022, PSCE is partner in the EITHOS project (European Identity Theft Observatory System).

EITHOS is developing a novel Identity Theft Observatory System, empowering European citizens, Law Enforcements Agencies (LEAs), and policy makers to further contribute to the prevention, detection, and investigation of identity theft related crime.

It will provide a common gateway for identity theft information and intelligence in Europe, built on top of a modern technological back end, based on two pillars: (1) Inform & Educate European citizens through the observatory itself and via innovative awareness campaigns regarding the safety of their personal data and identity; (2) Identify & address the challenges that Police Authorities face against identity theft and develop a robust software toolset to support them and enhance their investigations.
