Criminal justice authorities and multi-national service providers: enhancing public-private cooperation in cyberspace
Cooperation between criminal justice authorities and the private sector, in particular service providers, is essential to protect societies against crime. Such cooperation concerns primarily the access of police and prosecution services to data stored by providers for investigation purposes, but also good practice sharing and training.
A more coherent and homogeneous framework of cooperation is currently being pursued through the negotiations of the Second Additional Protocol to the Budapest Convention.
The Council of Europe and the APWG, including the APWG.EU, have been collaborating for many years on strengthening the criminal justice response to cybercrime.
- To present and foster the adoption of good practices of cooperation between criminal justice authorities and multinational service providers in cybercrime investigations;
- To assess legal, organizational, technical and cultural challenges related to publicprivate cooperation in fighting cybercrime;
- To present cases of successful investigations and offer resources, recommendations and solutions to further enhance cooperation between LEAs and SPs;
- To facilitate information sharing among participants.
At the end of the webinar participants are expected:
- To have increased their knowledge on current forms of collaboration between criminal justice authorities and private sector on cybercrime;
- To have gathered information on available tools and procedures, legal and technical, to support such collaboration, and to have identified relevant challenges and good practices;
- To have identified the type of support that can be provided through global capacity building initiatives.
