Europol: Training of police officers with ....... a game!

EuropolIn recent years, cryptocurrencies are a frequent attack target hackers. For this reason, Europol has decided to train police officers in order to be able to deal effectively with crimes related to cryptocurrencies. This will succeed with a kind of game.

The announcement of this game was made by Europol itself, at 6ο Cryptocurrency Conference. Europol said it was the first time that such a method was used for staff training in the search and detection of these crimes. It will be used for the first time in October at the Europol-Interpol Cybercrime Conference.

Trainees participating in the game will monitor and attempt to detect illegal transactions with cryptocurrency.

The game, created by Europol and the Center for Excellence in Terrorism, Resilience, Intelligence and Organized Crime Research (CENTRIC), is intended for researchers to acquire "virtual experience" in addressing real challenges associated with criptocurrency crime investigations .

Staff training, using games, may sound funny. In fact, however, it can prove to be extremely useful if applied to theft facts, Phishing attacks and many other kinds of fraud.

Detecting illegal transactions with cryptocurrency is not an easy task. That's why law enforcement agencies are putting special emphasis on staff training for these incidents, especially after the Crypto Mixing service, Bestmixer.

Europol closed Bestmixer, which had obtained millions of dollars of money laundering.

Another case, which made the authorities more concerned with crimes related to cryptocurrencies, is the Wall Street Market. The Dark Web market was also closed in May, after the executives made a scam and disappeared with over 14,2 million dollars in cryptocurrencies.

The idea of ​​using games to educate researchers and police officers is quite interesting and could really help to deal with crimes related to cryptocurrency.
