LOCARD was presented by Mr. Pablo López-Aguilar last May 19th at the ECTEG online General Assembly aimed at bringing together law enforcement agencies, international bodies, academia, private industry and experts.
During the presentation, Mr. López-Aguilar highlighted LOCARD as the ultimate solution of accommodating jurisdictions, territories and global regulation, together with high security demands.

eSkills Malta Foundation, in collaboration and partnership with the Malta Information Technology Agency (MITA), University of Malta, Malta Digital Innovation Authority (MDIA), Cyber Security Malta and Keith Cutajar (Court Expert on Digital Forensics) organised a national CyberSecurity Conference on the 5th of February 2020. Featuring speakers from Interpol and the British Computer Society among others, the event focused on challenging an audience comprising business executives and security practitioners on various CyberSecurity topics. Talks ranged from security management, penetration testing, digital forensics, post-quantum security and information security training, to the overlap of information security with innovative technologies.
Great presentation where he highlighted that disparities on how forensic reports are presented to different stakeholders, require a need to standardise the process used in the preparation and generation of digital forensic reports.
From LOCARD, we need to encourage digital forensic best practices and facilitate sharing and admissibility of reports across jurisdictions.
Costas Patsakis, LOCARD coordinator, attended the International Security Expo 2019 in London and fostered interesting dicussions on how digital forensics, blockchain or artificial intelligence could improve the collection and documentation of every digital evidence.
