Cybercrime is a threat to human rights, democracy and the rule of law. Criminal justice authorities are confronted with a continuous increase in the scale and quantity of cybercrime and other offences involving electronic evidence, with associated technical challenges, with issues related to cloud computing and jurisdiction, including links to organised crime, and with challenges facing the system of mutual legal assistance. The COVID-19 pandemic is accompanied by further proliferation of cybercrime.
This underlines the need for effective criminal justice action, making use of frameworks such as the Budapest Convention on Cybercrime and additional solutions, including those being developed for the 2nd Additional Protocol to permit instant cooperation in urgent and emergency situations subject to human rights and rule of law safeguards.
The International Association of Prosecutors, the GLACY+ project of the Council of Europe and the European Commission and the Octopus project of the Council of Europe are co-organising a series of thematic webinars to exchange views and share experiences on the existing and new forms of cooperation for effective access to electronic evidence, as well as solutions proposed by the 2nd Additional Protocol to the Budapest Convention.
