The EU-funded CyberSouth project held a meeting this summer on the Adaptation of the judicial training course on cybercrime and electronic evidence in Strasbourg, France. The five-day meeting gathered representatives from Algeria, Belgium, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco and Tunisia from specialised cybercrime units, prosecutors and judges.

The meeting was the occasion to present the content of the judicial course to CyberSouth countries and discuss how to adapt it when delivering in country training. The discussions were the occasion for participants to exchange on the content of the course. The results of this meeting will be used in the organisation and delivery of the training course for magistrates in the project CyberSouth.

Until February 2019, all CyberSouth countries will have benefited from basic and advanced judicial courses on cybercrime and electronic evidence. This activity has as objective to create a pool of trainers in each country, available to deliver local trainings. In January 2019, a regional training on judicial strategy will be held, to discuss on the integration of these courses in the training curricula of judicial institutes.

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.
