The fifth webinar in the series dedicated to the Second Additional Protocol (SAP) to the Budapest Convention, jointly organised by the International Association of Prosecutors (IAP) and the Council of Europe through the GLACY+ and Octopus Projects, took place on 23 May 2022.
This webinar was focused specifically on the new provisions regarding data protection safeguards set out in the 2nd Additional Protocol to the Budapest Convention. The experts provided insight, from both US and European perspective, on the new legal tools provided by the Protocol to ensure data protection is protected in cross-border investigations.
More than 70 participants from over 50 countries exchanged views and shared experiences to support better preparation of criminal justice authorities to implement the data protection safeguards in the 2nd Additional Protocol.
While this was the last webinar in the current series, a second joint series is envisaged for later in 2022. Further details will be announced on our webpage.
