SS01 - Cybercrime


Cybercrime crosses territorial borders owing to its instant and volatile nature. Dealing effectively with this threat requires a genuine harmonization of criminal legislation, enhanced sharing of information and international cooperation, optimizing the resources available to judicial investigators, as well as optimal training for law enforcement. The Council of Europe Convention on Cybercrime is a major step forward. But although more States are adopting this Convention, more efforts should be done to enhance mutual legal assistance in dealing with cybercrime.
