CYBERCRIME: NEW COUNCIL OF EUROPE RULES FOR COOPERATION AT INTERNATIONAL LEVEL

The Budapest Convention is the foundation for anti-cybercrime legislation in 80% of countries worldwide and has been signed by all EU Member States. A Second Additional Protocol provides tools to improve co-operation and disclosure of electronic evidence, while protecting fundamental rights, including with strong data protection safeguards. Such tools include for instance direct co-operation with service providers in other jurisdictions, co-operation in emergency situations, and joint investigation teams.  22 countries have so far signed the Protocol.  It will enter into force once ratified by 5 of the signatories.
