On 28-29 June 2022, the GLACY+ Project, a joint action of the European Union and the Council of Europe, together with its implementing partner INTERPOL and Octopus project, in cooperation with the Ministry of Communications in Fiji organized a two-day workshop with the scope of identifying the capacity building needs in Fiji, in view of its inclusion among the priority countries of the GLACY+ project for further cybercrime capacity-building support.
The team of international experts engaged with the representatives of the national authorities and private sector dealing with cybercrime-related matters on specific challenges and capacity needs with the aim to acquire a general outlook of the national capacities in dealing with cybercrime and cases involving electronic evidence. Conclusions and recommendations will integrate the identified country’s needs in terms of training and institutional developments that will serve as a baseline for further project support.
The GLACY+ project will further work with a national coordination team to shape and implement an action plan for reinforcing institutional capacities in the cooperation against cybercrime.
Fiji was invited to accede to the Budapest Convention in December 2021, following the adoption of the cybercrime legislation on 11 February 2021.
