The third Steering Committee meeting of CyberSouth project was held on 9 July 2019 in Strasbourg, France with the participation of representatives from Algeria, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco and Tunisia, and partners from France and Romania as well as the European Commission.
The meeting was the occasion to review the progress made within the project for the period November 2018-July 2019, to validate the next work plan and also to collect ideas for the future CyberSouth project. Constructive discussions were held resulting in more guidance helping in the final implementation phase of the project.
Since the beginning of the project, 58 activities have been implemented and the project has already reached 70% of its objectives towards the strengthening of legislation and institutional capacities in the cooperation on cybercrime and electronic evidence in the Southern Neighbourhood region.
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.
