The ECTEG is composed of law enforcement agencies from the European Union and the Member States of the European Economic Area, international organisations, academia, private industry and experts.

The main objective of the working group is to provide experience and expertise to further improve the coordination of cybercrime training, identifying opportunities to strengthen countries’ capacity to combat cybercrime through the development and delivery of a robust and sustainable training programme.

Funded by the European Commission and working closely with Europol-EC3 and CEPOL, both members of the advisory group, its activities aim, among other things, to support the international effort to harmonise cybercrime training across international borders. In addition to sharing knowledge, experience and finding training solutions and promoting standardisation of methods and procedures for training programmes and cooperation with other international organisations.
