Ukraine's banks and law enforcement agencies are prepared to fight cybercrimes during Euro-2012.

At the press conference "Are Ukrainian banks ready to Euro-2012?", chairman of the Ukraine's Independent Banks Association committee Olesia Danilchenko informed that for a year and a half the National Bank of Ukraine, Interior Ministry and EMA Association have been studying possible risks in the period of Euro-2012.

In 2011 the EMA members approved the agreement on cooperation, the so-called road map of counteractions to frauds. Banks, in turn, use "EXCHANGE-online" system.

"Banks know fraud cases and hold the online system updated. If any of the banks reveals fraud operations it informs immediately other participants. Together they can apply preventive measures," the official said, ForUm correspondent reports.

In his turn, deputy head of the department on cybercrimes Leonid Tymchenko explained that fraud and illegal operations, stealing of financial information and abuse of payment cards are among the priorities of the department's activity.

"Cybercrimes become more and more popular, and criminals do not have faces. It can be a man, a woman, a kid or even an older person," Tymchenko said and added that Ukraine's Criminal Code provides for up to five years of imprisonment for committing this kind of crimes.
