Workshop-Cybercrime and security:Public-private-partnership

Roundtable-Cybercrime and security: Public-private-partnership
From the very beginning facilitators identified the main topics such as prevention of crime, fundamental rights and cybercrime and cyber security. The workshop conveyed the important message with which I totally agree that it is getting more and more necessary to fight against cybercrimes and in this process the public private partnerships are crucial. It was very interesting to see the different approaches and perspectives towards the problem.
Participants agreed that there are some issues such as protection of minors regarding which it is easy to compromise. On the other hand there are other important issues such as hatred speech, racism which regarding which the compromise might not very clear. The speaker from Uk John Carr, under the theme of prevention the crime introduced the UK model against child abuse of images. In Uk model ,the main solution is based on blocking the websites. In particular, the one body which is called internet watch foundation is preparing the database/list of websites and addresses that advertise the availability of child abuse images or post them. The list is distributed among internet service providers, who voluntarily block the addresses. (There is no legal obligation and this is an example of PPP) He also mentioned that there is one positive side that the specific address and not the whole domain is blocked. He also talked about the structure and nature of responsible body and concluded that it should be in compliance with all the standards and that it should be transparent
Blocking was not the only solution presented on the workshop. According to one of the speakers hotlines might be a good solution as well, while the blocking inefficient. He noted that ISP might cooperate with hotlines, or ISP can run hotlines themselves. So, it was interesting to listen how different people see the solution in different ways and how different their perspectives can be.
Ministry of Justice, Saksonia talked about the developments they have in this area and she stressed the importance of multi stakeholder format. In addition to it, she said that there is need for international cooperation and international agreement as well.
Another issue which was also discussed during the workshop was importance of data protection and also challenges to it. Workshop also identified the key problem-anonymity and lack of traceability. There was also review of existing legal framework in this field. It is noteworthy that solutions some participants saw the solution in public awareness and education
The workshop was concluded with very interesting point that the solution that works for one crime might not work for another and that the main task should be the identification of problems and then seeking the solution.
