International Criminal Law Network 11th Annual Conference:
Legal and Technical Standardization and Cooperation on a National, European, and Global Scale
13 December 2012
Koninklijke Schouwberg, The Hague, Netherlands
The complexity of cyberspace breeds such unprecedented possibilities for criminal activity that a much more nuanced perspective on legal action is necessary in making institutions, organizations, policies, and technical tools more agile and robust in the fight against cybercrime. The effective investigation and prosecution of cybercrime in particular will largely rest on cooperation between governments, (intergovernmental) organisations and other stakeholders, both commercial and non-commercial.
Even after passing new laws and adding new cyber security divisions to organizations and institutions, there still remains a large disconnect between the law and its enforcement. Differing jurisdictions are among the most profound difficulties while traditional regulatory agencies try to grapple with the volatile nature of digital evidence.
This problem can be greatly alleviated through unified cooperation between stakeholders affected by cybercrime, which expands across all regions and economic sectors. In short, all are affected, yet not all are doing their part in teaming up to address it.
The purpose of this conference is therefore founded on stimulating further interaction and cooperation between diverse actors and stakeholders, to unite and harmonize systems, policies, structures, tools, and languages. It will overview and critique existing approaches and initiatives from both a legal and technical standpoint while exploring new and innovative possibilities for more effective and streamlined solutions.
