Webinar: Managing Cross-Border Digital Evidence in EU

February 17, 2021 — EEMA, an independent European think tank focused on identity, privacy and trust, recently announced it will host a High-Level Fireside webinar briefing on February 23, presenting "A New Common Approach to Manage Cross-Border Digital Evidence". The free webinar will consider improvements for sharing information between law enforcement and criminal justice departments across EU Member States, in order to preserve chain of custody and evidence admissibility in courts.

The procedure needed to obtain digital evidence, as well as its recognition in a court of justice, should follow standardized procedures aimed at guaranteeing the origin of the evidence and the integrity of the chain of custody. Chair of EEMA, Jon Shamah, stated, “The EEMA High Level Fireside Briefing will discuss the current challenges in the handling of digital forensic procedures and how the EU's LOCARD project will be solving these issues.”

LOCARD is a three-year project, which began in May 2019. It is funded through the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 program and aims to provide a holistic platform for chain of custody assurance along the forensic workflow. The webinar will feature an update and demonstration of the LOCARD platform, as well as an expert panel debate, with speakers including Superintendent at Bavarian Police, Tobias Mattes; Lead Researcher at Athena Research Center, Fran Casino; Chief Business Development Officer at MSAB, Michael Dickinson, and Security Consultant at EEMA, Steve Kemsley who will moderate the session.
