Capacity Building on Cybercrime


Publication date: 2013

Author: Aexander Seger


The international community has reached broad agreement, at political levels, on capacity building as an effective way to address the threat of cybercrime and theĀ  challenges related to electronic evidence. The purpose of this discussion paper is to illustrate how such a political agreement can be translated into actual capacity building programmes. It offers pointers, arguments and resources for organisations prepared to provide support, for those requiring assistance and for those designing cooperation projects. Capacity building on cybercrime and electronic evidence is not only aimed at strengthening the rule of law and human rights in cyberspace and at enhancing cybersecurity but also at contributing to human development, poverty reduction and democratic governance. This discussion paper may encourage, therefore, a stronger role of development cooperation organisations in capacity building on cybercrime. Source – Council of Europe Website
