One Cross-Border Treaty to Rule Them All: The Budapest Convention Protocol

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

The U.S. CLOUD Act permits countries with which the U.S. strikes a bilateral agreement to make direct surveillance demands on U.S. providers, and gives the U.S. reciprocal authority to make demands on the providers in the other country. The EU's E-Evidence regulation and directive will require companies doing business in the EU to appoint a representative to receive surveillance demands issued by any EU country. But, these are limited bi-lateral and regional approaches. This session will introduce you to a more global approach: the Council of Europe's new Protocol to the Budapest Cybercrime Convention. It is expected to facilitate direct demands from each signatory around the globe to communications service providers in other signatory states. There are only limited opportunities for stakeholders to weigh in and express their views on the Budapest Convention Protocol. One of those opportunities is coming this summer, right after RightsCon. Only a few civil society organisations have participated thus far in consultations around the Protocol. This Fishbowl event aims to change that, and equip more stakeholders -- particularly in civil society organisations -- to participate in consultations around the Protocol.
