Under the framework of the EU-funded CyberSouth Project, an online workshop on Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) linked to cybercrime investigation and e-evidence was held on 1 October 2020 in Lebanon.

The goal was to present the outcome of the assessment conducted on the Lebanese legal framework for handling e-evidence and introduce the benefits, general principles and structure of SOPs on e-evidence. Representatives from the Police Academy and the Internal Security Forces (ISF) and their Computer Forensic Laboratories took part in the event.

This activity helped the Lebanese stakeholders widen their understanding on the benefits of having domestic SOPs in line with international standards and of showcasing legislative tools and procedures for conducting cybercrime investigations and e-evidence collection.

CyberSouth is a joint project of the European Union and the Council of Europe. It contributes to the prevention and control of cybercrime and other offences involving electronic evidence in the region of the Southern Neighbourhood, in line with international human rights and rule of law standards and good practices.
