Under the framework of the CyberSouth Project, on the 18th of November 2020, an online workshop on Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) was held for the benefit of Algerian representatives that deal with cybercrime and e-evidence.
The goal was to introduce the benefits, general principles and structure of SOPs on e-evidence as well as to assess whether the existing domestic ones are in line with international standards and best practices. Representatives from the Ministry of Defense, General Directorate for National Security (DGSN), Gendarmerie and their respective Computer Forensic Laboratories took part in the event.
This activity helped the Algerian stakeholders to widen their understanding on the benefit of having domestic SOPs in line with international standards and of showcasing legislative tools and procedures for conducting cybercrime investigations and e-evidence collection. Lastly, the participants had the chance to present their domestic SOPs and assess their compliance with international standards and best practices.
The CyberSouth project is fully committed to supporting the Algerian authorities in the process of reinforcing their capacities to fight against cybercrime.
