Several meetings with law enforcement authorities were held in Tunis (03-04 December), Rabat (09-10 December) and Amman (12 December) under the framework of the EU-funded Cybersouth project.
The training activities were jointly organized with the authorities in charge of cybercrime investigations and training within the Police and Gendarmerie. They aimed at presenting the resources developed by the Council of Europe on electronic evidence (Electronic Evidence Guide, Digital Forensics Guideline, Standard Operating Procedures for the collection, analysis and presentation of the electronic evidence developed by ECTEG and adapted in Arabic language with the support of CyberSouth Project) and establishing the countries’ training needs to be followed-up within CyberSouth Project.
These meetings helped the authorities from Tunisia, Morocco and Jordan be acquainted with the international standards and structure their responses to cybercrime and e-evidence. The next step will be the implementation of these standards in their training curricula and the development of a national training manual for cybercrime investigators.
CyberSouth is a joint project of the European Union and the Council of Europe. It contributes to the prevention and control of cybercrime and other offences involving electronic evidence in the region of the Southern Neighbourhood, in line with international human rights and rule of law standards and good practices.
