Investigating Cybercrime at the United Nations (Cyber Security Seminar Series, part 6)

Date & Time:
11:00:00 - 12:00:00,
Wednesday 5 June, 2013


Over the last two years, the United Nations’ Office on Drugs and Crime has been conducting a study on preventing and combating cybercrime, using extensive interviews and detailed questionnaires completed by 69 states and a number of non-governmental organisations. Dr Brown was part of the team producing the final report, which was published in February 2013. In this talk he’ll describe the key findings, which cover:

  • The impact of fragmentation at international level and diversity of national cybercrime laws on international co-operation;

  • Formal international co-operation in criminal matters involving cybercrime and electronic evidence for all crimes;

  • The role of evidence ‘location’;

  • Harmonisation of national legal frameworks;

  • Law enforcement and criminal justice capacity;

  • Cybercrime prevention activities.
