G8 Conference on Cyber-Crime (3)

G8 Conference on Cyber-Crime (3)

Source: Statement made by the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs Spokesperson. Paris, May 17, 2000.

The Paris conference, "a dialogue between the public authorities and private sector on security and confidence in cyberspace," ends this morning. The final communiqué drawn up by the representatives of governments is available.

France welcomes the productive exchanges between the public authorities and private sector on the issues and the legal, operational and technical solutions for combating cybercrime.

It will continue its efforts to take forward the various initiatives that it proposed which are, may I remind you:

  • in operational terms:
  • extension of round-the-clock points of contact (operational 24 hours a day seven days a week) launched by the G8;
  • introduction of new modes of operating at INTERPOL to monitor the network;
  • widening of EUROPOL's powers, currently limited to offenses committed with the aid of new technologies, to attacks on the actual operating of computer systems and networks (hacking, etc.);
  • in terms of mutual legal assistance:
  • at the Council of Europe: the conclusion within a reasonable time-frame of the Convention of the Council of Europe on Cybercrime which is being drafted already with the participation of the United States, Canada, Japan, South Africa and Israel. This convention is for us the first step towards an appropriate international legal framework which we'd like to see adopted by the greatest possible number of states;
  • in the European Union: the inclusion of the war on cybercrime as one of the priorities of the e-Europe initiative.

France has also proposed that a plan of action should evolve from the communication that the Commission will present in the next few months on all the measures that can be taken in the context of the first and third pillars to beef up the war on cybercrime (study of the necessary adaptations in criminal and procedural legislation in each member state on harmonizing offenses, regulations regarding the conservation of connections data and the formulation of mechanisms for accelerated cooperation).

This study could possibly lead to a specific instrument for mutual judicial assistance in criminal matters in this area at the G8: the Okinawa summit which will address the information society, including cybercrime, will also proceed with an evaluation of the work of the Paris Conference.
