We are also responsible for coordination and other measures against economic crime, including the development of methods to combat economic crime more effectively. The Authority has also been instructed to provide information on economic crime to other authorities, municipalities, industry, organisations and the general public.

SECA has also founded two councils of significant importance, the Economic Crime Council and the Forensic Council. The purpose of the Economic Crime Council is to be responsible for coordinating authorities at a central level.
