FORMOBILE secured the European Commission backing by putting together a proposal that met the requirements for technology to enhance the fight against crime and terrorism through the use of digital forensics. In doing so, the consortium will help the EU build on the European Agenda for Security, to ensure that people can live in an area of freedom, security and justice, without internal frontiers.
Work on the project launched in May 2019 and will run for three years. This project received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation program under grant agreement No. 832800.
“We are very excited about this opportunity to work together with other agencies across Europe to help make the world safer by modernizing the digital forensic tools and standards that exist today,” said Joel Bollö, MSAB CEO. “This is a strong endorsement of MSAB’s leadership and expertise, and we are grateful for the opportunity. Criminals and terrorists are becoming more sophisticated in their use of mobile devices, encryption and apps. There is strength in numbers and by coming together collectively, the FORMOBILE project will benefit the entire digital forensic community – and all EU citizens.”
