We are pleased to announce the recent publication of the LOCARD's review of the state of the art on blockchain technology at the latest Cybercrime Digest report of the Council of Europe. This bi-weekly report, led by the Cybercrime Programme Office (C-PROC), selects relevant news and offers readers an updated outlook on cybercrime advancements.

At LOCARD, we believe that there are many questions related to the digital forensic field, transfer of cross-border digital evidence, blockchain technology and other topics related to the scope of the project.

For this reason, we offer you a series of Frequently Asked Questions that we will update as the project evolves.

LOCARD webinar 16th July 2020

 

In their fight against cybercrime, one of the most difficult challenges for several countries is to standardise the process used in the preparation and generation of digital forensic reports. The procedure needed to obtain digital evidence, as well as its recognition in a court of justice, should follow standardised procedures aimed at guaranteeing the origin of the evidence and the integrity of the chain of custody. This is a crucial step towards producing high quality reports and a way to encourage digital forensics best practices and facilitate sharing and admissibility of reports across jurisdictions.

REGISTER NOW in the two-part webinar that will take place next 16th July 2020 aimed at addressing these and other related needs.

The online child sexual abuse has been one of the cybercrime areas most affected during the COVID-19 crisis, as both children and offenders have been forced to stay home and spend more time on the internet. 

In this lines, the Europol has published, last June 19th 2020, a report aimed at finding ways to confront the serious threat to children’s safety. Some of its key findings are described below:

The European Standards Organization (ESO), ETSI, has released the document "Techniques for assurance of digital material used in legal proceedings" that aims to define a process of receiving, transforming and outputting material that can be assured digitally (Digital Evidence Bag) and to identify ways to provide assurance of material used in legal proceeding. The document presents a "set of extra tools for those wanting to demonstrate the integrity of digital evidence".
