International Collaboration on Policies for Cybersecurity and Data Protection
Since a few years we are working with the Council of Europe in a partnership to help to drive a Cybersecurity treaty. We realize that a problem a lot of Law Enforcement agencies have is inconsistent legislation which makes is unbelievably hard to catch the criminals. The Council of Europe treaty is a great starting point and has been ratified not only by most of the member states of the Council of Europe but by a lot of additional countries around the globe.
Now, the European Union and the United States have agreed to treat such challenges as international issues and to develop joint policies based on shared values.
Unfortunately, the agreement is not too concrete but the fact that we have an agreement in place, should let us hope: EU-US Joint Statement on "Enhancing transatlantic cooperation in the area of Justice, Freedom and Security"
