CCC to participate in the negotiations of the first UN Convention against Cybercrime

The Center for Cooperation in Cyberspace (CCC) was approved by the United Nations to participate in the works of the ‘Ad Hoc Committee to Elaborate a Comprehensive International Convention on Countering the Use of Information and Communications Technologies for Criminal Purposes’ (AHC).

The CCC is the only Portuguese NGO participating in this landmark process, in which the UN Member States are tasked with negotiating and drafting the first legally binding instrument to prevent, investigate and prosecute cybercrime at the global scale.

Representing over 20 members from Latin America and African civil societies, the CCC will be at the United Nations Headquarters in New York for the third round of the negotiations, alongside organizations such as Microsoft, Amazon, Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, Deloitte, Mandiant, Chatham House, and Interpol. This third round of the AHC is set to discuss the following agenda items: International Cooperation, Technical Assistance, Preventive Measures, and the Mechanisms of Implementation of the future Convention.
