comprehensive study of the problem of cybercrime

Vienna, 17-21 January 2011

 

During the Twelfth United Nations Congress on Criminal Prevention and Criminal Justice in 2010, Member States discussed in some depth the issue of cybercrime and decided to invite the Commission on Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice to convene an open-ended intergovernmental expert group to conduct a comprehensive study of the problem of cybercrime as well as the response to it. This recommendation was adopted by the Commission on Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice and then by ECOSOC in its resolution 2010/18 and by  the Genral Assembly in its resolution 65/230.

In line with paragraph 42 of the Salvador Declaration, the comprehensive study is to examine the following topics:

42. We invite the Commission on Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice to consider convening an open-ended intergovernmental expert group to conduct a comprehensive study of the problem of cybercrime and responses to it by Member States, the international community and the private sector, including the exchange of information on national legislation, best practices, technical assistance and international cooperation, with a view to examining options to strengthen existing and to propose new national and international legal or other responses to cybercrime.
