On January 22, 2015, the National Cybersecurity Institute (NCI) hosted a webinar on the “International Cooperation on Cybercrime.”
The webinar addressed the role of international cooperation in responding to cybercrime. It discussed the Council of Europe Convention on Cyber Crime (Budapest Convention), the role of the 24/7 Network of National Cybercrime Points of Contact, and role of legal attaches in mutual legal assistance (MLAT). The webinar also addressed the strengths and weaknesses of international cooperation through case studies.
The webinar was presented by Dr. Kevin Newmeyer who is currently the Senior Operations Director for the CREATE™ project of the DoD High Performance Computing Modernization Program.
