Octopus 2021: Cooperation against Cybercrime, 16-18 November

Virtual session


This year’s Octopus Conference took place on 16-18 November providing an opportunity for cybercrime experts from public and private sectors as well as international and non-governmental organizations from all over the world to share experience.

A special event with high level interventions was organized on 16 November in cooperation with the Hungarian Chairmanship of the Committee of Ministers on the occasion of the 20th anniversary of the Budapest Convention and the forthcoming 2nd additional Protocol on enhanced cooperation and disclosure of electronic evidence.

On 17 and 18 November, multiple workshops punctuated the day, including regional workshops (for Asia, Latin America, the Caribbean, the Pacific, Africa), lightning talks with interventions by participants, and other thematic sessions (Capacity building, Ransomware, AI….). A closing Plenary took a look at Octopus take-aways.

Key messages

About 1200 cybercrime experts from some 120 countries – including from public sector but also international and private sector organisations, civil society organisations and academia – participated in the Octopus Conference on Cybercrime from 16 to 18 November 2021. 

Octopus 2021 was the 13th edition of this conference. The bottom line of all the previous ones had been a call to “cooperate”. The one for Octopus 2021 is the same but includes a supplement: cooperate, the tools are there!
