Cybercrime Repository

In 2015 UNODC under the framework of the Commission on Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice (CCPCJ) launched the cybercrime repository, a central database of legislation, case law and lessons-learned on cybercrime and electronic evidence. The cybercrime repository aims to assist countries in their efforts to prevent and effectively prosecute cybercriminals.

The repository comprises of three parts that aim to facilitate States' efforts against cybercrime:

  • The Database of Legislation, which contains substantive and procedural legislation on cybercrime and electronic evidence of over 180 countries and is searchable by country, type of cybercrime offence and procedural aspects. The database contains extracts of laws relevant to cybercrime offences and cross-cutting issues and allows users to access full legislation documents;
  • The Case Law Database, which contains jurisprudence, as well as records of successful law enforcement operations, on cybercrime and crimes related to electronic evidence. This allows users to see how States are tackling cybercrime cases both operationally and in their courts;
  • The Lessons Learned Database, which contains national practices and strategies in preventing and combating cybercrime. Information compiled in this database has been gathered in the framework of the UNODC Comprehensive Study on Cybercrime and is supplemented by national cybercrime and cybersecurity strategies.
