The European Union’s criminal intelligence police force, Europol, is addressing the rise in cyber crime with a new, state-of-the-art Cybercrime Centre, it announced Friday.

With an annual operating budget of 7 million euro, The Center will address three main areas of cyber crime: organized fraud, crimes targeting critical infrastructure and information systems (often grouped under the umbrella of “cyber terrorism”), and crimes causing serious harm, such as child pornography.  The facility includes a sealed room that blocks wireless signals, thus preventing criminals from remotely wiping incriminating data, according to the BBC.
