On Wednesday 8 June, CERRE Senior Manager Tech, Media & Telecom, Claire-Marie Healy, will moderate the roundtable “E-evidence: too far or not far enough?” at the International Cybersecurity Forum (FIC 2022).
It is now considered that almost one in two criminal investigations requires the seizure of electronic evidence hosted on servers in another state. The proposed EU regulation on cross-border access to electronic evidence in criminal matters (2018)—known as e-Evidence—aims to facilitate the acquisition, in the context of police and judicial investigations, of electronic evidence held by Internet service providers. Europol’s Sirius project and other initiatives launched in the framework of the Budapest Convention pursue the same objective. But in a context marked by the Pegasus affair on the one hand and by a tightening of several European regimes on the other, several organisations are concerned about this new data collection instrument, which they fear could give too much power to police authorities.
Panellists Tania Schroeter (European Commission), Cyrille Tesser (La Poste Groupe), and Lilija Mazeikiene (Europol) will discuss with Claire-Marie what is the current status of the e-Evidence project? How can it facilitate the work of investigators? And how can we ensure that it does not infringe on the rights and freedoms of Internet users and citizens?
