This year saw a big step in the fight against cybercrime with the adoption of the second Additional Protocol to the Budapest Convention, the European Union’s AI Act proposal which regulates (restricts) the use of AI for law enforcement purposes, and the strengthened efforts towards a UN treaty on cybercrime. This session will address whether these new tools for international cooperation on criminal justice in cyberspace are the solution, or only the first step towards better protection against cybercrime and what will be their impact in practice.
On 12 May the Second Additional Protocol to the Convention on Cybercrime opened for signature. This new protocol introduces new tools for international cooperation, such as direct cooperation with service providers in other jurisdictions, enhanced cooperation in emergency situations and other such operational measures.
Starting 30 May, UN member states will kick off the 2nd negotiating session for a new treaty on cybercrime - considering criminalization, law enforcement & procedural measures.
This session is a continuation of the debate from previous years’ discussions on regulatory efforts to address the issues of cybercrime and the developments ever since.
Human rights issues will be an integral part of this discussion. The discussion related to human rights aims to include a special emphasis on the technological tools, such as the use of AI facial recognition technology and automated criminal profiling, especially in the light of the new European Union AI Act proposal which regulates the use of such technologies. The central message will revolve around the question whether these new regulatory initiatives allow LEA to do the right thing in the right way.
The session will consist of short presentations from the key participants followed by Q&As with the session participants both on site and online.
- Second Additional Protocol to the Convention on Cybercrime on enhanced co-operation and disclosure of electronic evidence
- UN Ad Hoc Committee, Overview of existing instruments, recommendations and other documents on countering the use of information and communications technologies for criminal purposes
