The webinar held on 12 June 2020 on "Cybercrime and terrorism: The criminal justice response" was a joint initiative of the Cybercrime Programme Office (C-PROC) of the Council of Europe and the UN Office of Counter-Terrorism.
During the webinar the panelists discussed about the criminal justice response to cyber-enabled terrorism and a highly interesting and recent case study was presented by addressing the problematic areas in investigating terrorist attacks and ensuring a coordinated response.
The webinar attracted a broad audience of almost 400 people, coming from 81 countries, representatives of national governments and policy makers, national agencies responsible for cybercrime and cyber security, criminal justice authorities involved in cybercrime and counter-terrorism areas, including judges, prosecutors and law enforcement agencies, as well as non-governmental organizations and academia.
Participants engaged in the Q&A session that followed the presentation, addressing a number of topics, from training courses to available OSINT tools, from challenges to international cooperation and the role of the Budapest Convention to admissibility of cross-border evidence in court.
A number of questions that could not be addressed during the 2 hours webinar will be replied by the panellists in writing and published on the dedicated webpage of the webinar, together with available presentations and other resources.
The event was organized under the Global Action on Cybercrime Extended (GLACY+) project of the European Union and the Council of Europe.
