Comments on the Draft Second Protocol to the Convention on Cybercrime (Budapest Convention)

Posted by Vipul Kharbanda at Feb 25, 2019 04:48 PM |
Following consultations with data protection, civil society, industry and others, during the Cybercrime Convention Committee (T-CY) meeting from 29 November 2018 onwards, the Cybercrime Convention Committee has sought additional contributions regarding the provisional draft text for a Second Additional Protocol to the Budapest Convention on Cybercrime (“Budapest Convention”).

The Centre for Internet and Society, (“CIS”), is a non-profit organisation that undertakes interdisciplinary research on internet and digital technologies from policy and academic perspectives. The areas of focus include digital accessibility for persons with diverse abilities, access to knowledge, intellectual property rights, openness (including open data, free and open source software, open standards, and open access), internet governance, telecommunication reform, digital privacy, artificial intelligence, freedom of expression, and cyber-security. This submission is consistent with CIS’ commitment to safeguarding general public interest, and the rights of stakeholders. CIS is thankful to the Cybercrime Convention Committee for this opportunity to provide feedback to the Draft.

The draft text addresses three issues viz. language of requests, emergency multilateral cooperation and taking statements through video conferencing. Click to download the entire submission here.
