Cybercrime Cooperation for Developing Countries: International Frameworks

4 September 2014 - A Workshop on Other in Istanbul, Turkey

Agenda

IGF 2014 sub theme that this workshop fall under

Enhancing Digital Trust

Description

Fostering trust: How can developing countries achieve international cooperation against cybercrime through legal frameworks

Developing Countries face serious challenges with respect to the investigation and prosecution of cybercrime especially obtaining evidence admissible in legal proceedings from Developed Countries where much of the data and services reside which is exacerbated by a lack of knowledge and misconceptions regarding efficacy of existing legal frameworks.

This capacity building workshop will:

a) Address specific questions from participants, clarify misconceptions regarding existing legal frameworks and provide substantive factual and legal responses based on the practical experience of experts regarding issues eg. transborder access to data, mutual legal assistance, 24/7 points of contact etc.

b) Demonstrate how joining and implementing legal frameworks can help build trust not only between governments but also the private sector and it can help mobilise resources for technical assistance and capacity building.

c) Address concerns of participants regarding legal frameworks for international cooperation at the previous IGF 2013 workshop by Developing Countries' Centre for Cyber Crime Law: 'Cybercrime Treaties: Advantages for Developing Countries'.

This capacity building workshop would effectively be the first of its kind for Developing Countries at the IGF since last year when all governments at the UN reached a unanimous consensus on the importance of cyber crime capacity building, a consensus echoed by business and civil society in a national context.

The interactive format would facilitate the transfer of knowledge and best practices rather than presentations or generic panel discussions.

Description of how the proposer plan to facilitate discussion amongst speakers, audience members and remote participants

The capacity building workshop will be almost entirely interactive. A brief 10-15 minute presentation will set the scene however the remaining 110 minutes will enable Developing Country participants to interact directly with the speakers. Participants will direct specific questions to the speakers who will provide practical and legal solutions. The interactive format would facilitate transfer of knowledge and best practices rather than lectures, presentations or generic panel discussions.
