The theme of the panel discussion is ‘Law enforcement access to e-evidence: challenges & risks’.
The panel will discuss the recent developments concerning police access to evidence stored in other jurisdictions, such as the Microsoft search warrant case. With the increase of cloud computing, data that can be valuable in resolving criminal cases may be stored in data centres abroad. Considering that territoriality and sovereignty used to stop at the border, how can law enforcement authorities now get (legal) access to data across the border, both between Member States and between the EU and third countries? What are the underlying challenges and risks for data protection? What is the role of tech companies? During the panel discussion this theme will be explored from a policy, legal, and tech perspective.
