The Cybercrime Convention Committee (T-CY) has finalised a new report illustrating the benefits and impact of the Budapest Convention on legislation, domestic and international investigations, public/private cooperation and the strengthening of criminal justice capacities globally.
The report highlights:
Practical experience shows that the Budapest Convention is more than a legal document. Backed up by the T-CY and the C-PROC specialised Cybercrime Programme Office for global capacity building, it is a framework that permits hundreds of practitioners from all over the world to share experience and create relationships that facilitate cooperation in specific cases, including in emergency situations, beyond the specific provisions foreseen in this Convention.
As membership in this treaty keeps increasing, capacity building programmes are expanding and the treaty is further evolving through the future 2nd Additional Protocol on enhanced international cooperation and access to evidence in the cloud, the framework of the Budapest Convention is likely to remain highly relevant and make a difference worldwide for years to come.
