Eurojust and the Council of Europe concluded on 1 October the second joint conference on cybercrime, focusing on investigations of online sexual violence against children on the Darknet.

The event gathered over 100 participants from countries supported by cybercrime capacity-building projects of the EU and the Council of Europe, as well as Eurojust National Members and representatives of international organisations, internet service providers, industry and civil society.

“To tackle this atrocious crime and the growth of Darknet criminality, we need to join forces. Our cooperation with the Council of Europe and other major actors in this field is of prime importance to us”, said Eurojust’s President, Ladislav Hamran.

Discussions focused on the tools available when dealing with cross-border cybercrime and collection of electronic evidence, as well as on strengthening international cooperation.
