- Develop a common platform for criminal data and information, investigation practices, tools and tactics, current focus of operations, criminal profiles, contacts of investigation and prosecution experts.
- Create tactics to disrupt trust in dark markets should be developed and tested
- Methods should be researched to link open source with dark market information, and to link the digital and physical patterns of users. Investigation approaches should break these cyber-physical silo’s.
- At least, Europol and Cepol should become the mandated bodies to internationally train / capacity building all LEAs on a range of expertise, from technology and data literacy to jurisdictional aspects, and to promote a major digital and data literacy among investigators.
- A common international (European) regulation and legal framework should be established, in particular tackling the responsibilities and role of the private sector.
