On September 16, U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch addressed the European Cybercrime Center at Europol, where she highlighted recent and planned DOJ initiatives related to global cybercrime and cyber threat efforts and stressed the DOJ’s commitment to information-sharing with international law enforcement authorities. Lynch noted that the U.S. and the European Union recently signed an “Umbrella” Data Privacy and Protection Agreement aimed at strengthening the countries’ ability to take on crime and terrorism while protecting personal privacy. In addition, Lynch revealed that the DOJ intends to temporarily assign a U.S. attorney from the DOJ’s Criminal Division to work alongside European authorities to enhance collaboration and information-sharing.
