It will feature discussions on international issues associated with cyber criminal activity and the ITU Toolkit for Cybercrime Legislation – developed in a joint effort of 13 nations led by the American Bar Association’s (ABA) Privacy and Computer Crime Committee under the auspices of the International Telecommunications Unit of the United Nations.

“Cybercrime often does not remain in one jurisdiction or one country,” said Allan Berg, President of the Maryland InfraGard Chapter, member of the ABA Privacy & Computer Crime Committee and founding member of GovSec and the GovSec Board of Advisors. “To effectively detect and deter cyber criminals, it is vital for our law enforcement agencies and our legal community to look beyond our nation’s borders and work with their international colleagues in order to have a global framework of cybercrime statutes. This workshop will help law enforcement personnel and the legal community learn how nations can work collaboratively to establish a network of laws to combat this global problem.”
