The money will fund programmes to train law enforcement officers, prosecutors and judges on cybercrime.
The Council of Europe conducts such training in support of its international Convention on Cybercrime aimed at enabling the prosecution of cybercriminals.
"It is clear McAfee shares our dedication and we thank them for this grant," said Alexander Seger, head of economic crime division for the Council of Europe.
The National District Attorneys Association (NDAA) provides education of local constituencies and offer assistance to cybercrime victims.
"With this grant, NDAA can extend its training programmes on cybercrime to the broadest range of prosecutors," said Jason Scott, manger of the NDAA's ID crime prosecution center.
