Ladies and Gentlemen,


The EU and United States reaffirmed their strong partnership in favour of a global, open, stable and secure cyberspace where the rule of law fully applies, where the same rights that individuals have offline are protected online, and where the security, economic growth, prosperity, and integrity of free and democratic societies is promoted and preserved.

The Council of Europe organized a dedicated high level workshop on cybercrime and electronic evidence for the Supreme Court Justices of Mauritius from 1 to 3 August. A large majority of the Supreme Court Judges were actively engaged over the three-day program.

The Council of Europe, in partnership with the Philippines' Department of Justice – Office of Cybercrime (DOJ-OOC) and the Supreme Court of the Philippines carried out the GLACY+ Advanced Judicial Training Course on Cybercrime and Electronic Evidence for Judges, Magistrates and Prosecutors from the ASEAN Region in Cebu on 19-22 June 2018.

On 16 April 2018, the Council adopted conclusions on malicious cyber activities which underline the importance of a global, open, free, stable and secure cyberspace where human rights and fundamental freedoms and the rule of law fully apply.

En septembre, le Collège européen de sécurité et de défense lancera une cyber-plateforme afin de coordonner l’éducation, la formation, l’évaluation et les exercices dans le domaine de la cybersécurité et de la cyberdéfense dans toute l’Europe.
