(AGENPARL) – Den Haag (Nederland), ven 11 gennaio 2019 On 8 and 9 November, the European Judicial Cybercrime Network (EJCN) plenary meeting brought together cybercrime experts from all over Europe at Eurojust to discuss old and new challenges in the area of cybercrime and possible ways of improving cooperation at transnational level. The meeting was attended by representatives from the Council of the European Union, the European Commission, Europol, the European Judicial Network as well as the Council of Europe.During the meeting, the discussions centred on developing expertise and knowledge on topics of great importance to cyber-practitioners, e.g. the practical challenges of dealing with the large number of victims in cybercrime cases and recent developments and possible solutions regarding access to WHOIS data for criminal procedure purposes. In addition, the network reflected on its possible contribution to the application of the new instruments proposed by the European Commission in the legislative initiative on e-evidence. Another session of the meeting was dedicated to training on how to best investigate cybercrime and cyber-enabled crime, with a special focus on providing training for actors at judicial level. After two years of existence, the network and Eurojust had a first exchange of views during the meeting on the progress made so far by the network, in view of preparing a report to be communicated to the Council at the beginning of next year. Particular attention was also given to the execution of the current EJCN work programme and the prospects of the upcoming one.
