A new workshop on “ Cooperation between Internet Service Providers and Law Enforcement Bodies in Conducting Cyber Crime Investigations”, was organized within the framework of Joint Project of the European Union and the Council of Europe – iPROCEEDS-2 and in cooperation with the Ministry of Interior of Republika Srpska, in Banja Luka, on 26 November 2020.
The audience was formed by representatives of the Ministry of Interior of Republika Srpska, Federal Ministry of Interior and Brcko District Police, prosecutors, representatives of Internet Service Providers (ISP) and representatives of the Communications Regulatory Agency.
Aimed at raising awareness on potential risks and providing information on new threats and cybercrime activities in the country and establishing strong public-private partnerships and trust, the workshop approached topics such as: the challenges in cybercrime investigations and access to data held by ISP, as well as the development of jointly working solutions to prevent and detect cybercrime in Republika Srpska.
The meeting was a good opportunity for the consolidation of the public-private partnership and the identification of further steps to be taken in increasing the efficiency of communication between ISP’s and police authorities.
The iPROCEEDS-2 project will continue to support the organization of similar activities in other project countries/ area.
