From 14 – 15 November 2019, the United Nations Security Council Counter-Terrorism Committee Executive Directorate (CTED), will hold the third expert group meeting (EGM) on digital evidence, which is organized within the framework of CTED/UNODC/IAP global initiative on digital evidence across borders. This EGM is jointly organized by CTED, the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), the International Association of Prosecutors (IAP) and the Internet and Jurisdiction Policy Network.
The third EGM will consist of two days of consultations with relevant stakeholders, including practitioners with expertise in national legal frameworks and/or statutory or administrative power to request service providers to preserve electronic evidence; as international organizations; and CSPs, including small tech platforms. The aim of the discussions will be to strengthen participants’ understanding of current issues relating to access to electronic evidence; bolster international cooperation between the public and private sectors and across jurisdictions in this area; and enhance the integrity of electronic evidence in the cross-border context. Participants will be invited to provide inputs on the feasibility of standardizing requests for digital evidence across borders and on other ways to facilitate cooperation between law-enforcement agencies and CSPs.
On Friday, 15 November 2019, in Conference Room 12, from 10.00 a.m. to 11.30 a.m., there will be an informal briefing for Member States at United Nations Headquarters.
