The head of the Council of Europe's cybercrime office, Alexander Seger, told Anadolu Agency that these kind of projects had "great political support".

"When you look at the issues such as cybercrime, information technology and criminal actions, we are at the starting point," said Seger.

Cavkov stressed the importance of international cooperation for a more effective fight against cybercrime.

The conference will last until Wednesday.
