A look inside the EU's new cybercrime unit

Help

A growing dependence on the internet is putting Europe in increasing danger from cyber criminals, senior European detectives have warned.

They say individuals and businesses in the EU will face a rapidly growing threat from African fraudsters, as the IT infrastructure there improves.

The warning comes as a new European cybercrime unit opens in Holland.

The facility includes a sealed room that blocks wireless signals preventing criminals from remotely wiping incriminating data.
