Session teaser

This session focuses on three main aspects of criminal justice in cyberspace: regulatory fragmentation, cooperation of LEA with CSIRTs and service providers, and human rights implications of cybercrime investigations. Due to the pandemic crisis, a fourth important element of this session will be focusing on the impact of the COVID-19 on cybercrime.

Session description

The session will address current debates in cyberspace in four main areas:

Regulation: This part will focus on the possibility of having a binding international cyber law system based on the Tallinn Manual 2.0 on the international law applicable to cyber operations and on the Budapest Convention on Cybercrime. Discussions will focus on two most recent legislative initiatives, undertaken respectively by the Council of Europe and the UN, to enhance the current framework applicable to cybercrime – namely, the Second Additional Protocol to the Budapest Convention on Cybercrime and the UN treaty proposal which led to many debates on the fragmentation of the fight against cybercrime.

Cooperation: Following the scenario of a fragmented regulation on cybercrime, further impact on the cooperation of LEAs with CSIRTs and service providers on access to electronic evidence in the cloud and trans-border access to data is envisaged.

Human rights: This section will tackle the implications of cybercrime investigations on human rights, with a special emphasis on the use of AI facial recognition technology and automated criminal profiling. It will also tackle how technology/AI/Machine Learning/Natural Language Processing can support law enforcement in cybercrime investigations now and in the future and possible ethical and legal aspects of use of AI for these purposes.

COVID-19 and cybercrime: A brief overview on how cybercriminals have been exploiting the COVID-19 crisis will be given, together with resources on responses from countries, on strengthening criminal justice response, prevention and protection against cybercrime, respecting fundamental rights and the rule of law.


The workshop will consist of short presentations from the key participants followed by Q&As with the workshop participants in the live chat. The workshop will also include polls as icebreakers and to keep the audience active. One moderator will facilitate the dialogue among key participants and a second moderator will facilitate the active participation of the audience.
