Event Description

Mapping the Problem and Sharing Best Practices

 

Objective

The use of encryption serves the legitimate need for privacy and security as well as the needs of business and governments for a safe and secure cyberspace. In practice, anyone can use encryption in order to secure and protect their personal data and communications. Encryption technologies are also exploited by criminals, however, in order to hide their data and potential evidence, protect their communications and conceal their financial transactions.

The aim of this event is to analyse the obstacles that encryption poses to effective cybercrime investigations and to consider the effects of dealing or failing to deal with the problems.

Key topics

  • Encrypted data: technical and legal issues
  • Demonstrations: how encryption works
  • Mutual Legal Assistance in the digital age
  • Encryption: case law from the European Court of Human Rights
  • Jurisdictional issues
  • EU legislation in progress
