Cyber Scams campaign

Europol’s European Cybercrime Centre (EC3), the European Banking Federation (EBF) and their partners from the public and private sector shave joined forces to present ‘CyberScams’ as the key theme of the European Cyber security Month 2021.

An essential way to boost awareness is to make sure that the public stays up to date with any new tricks that criminals might have up their sleeves. In order to address this, Europol’s European Cybercrime Centre (EC3) and the European Banking Federation (EBF) have launched Cyber Scams 2.0, a reviewed and updated version of the 2018 Cyber Scams campaign.

Some of the Cyber Scams materials added to the campaign include:

  • Tech support scams
  • Updated Vishing advice
  • ID theft methods

In addition, the campaign is also raising awareness on SIM swapping, emphasizing the importance of identifying and reporting any such attempts.

Cyber Scams 2.0 is an excellent example of public-private cooperation, with EU’s banks and law enforcement agencies coming together to help build a more cyber-resilient society. The initiative was launched as part of EBF’s #DigitalThursdays event, against the backdrop of October’s European Cybersecurity Month , the EU’s annual campaign dedicated to promoting cybersecurity.
