Who investigates cybercrime in Canada?
Submitted to Technology
The RCMP’s National Cybercrime Coordination Unit (NC3) was established in 2020 to work with other law enforcement agencies, governments and private sector partners to limit cybercrime in Canada.
Cybercrime relates to criminal acts on cell phones or the Internet that harm the security or financial health of individuals, companies, even countries. The scope of cybercrime includes trafficking in child porn, committing fraud, stealing intellectual property, stealing identities or violating privacy.
From April 1, 2020 until end of October 2021, the NC3 received over 2,500 requests to assist domestic and international law enforcement partners. The majority of these requests involve ransomware.
NC3 will be fully operational in 2024.
