Privacy International's interventions at the second session of UN Cybercrime Treaty negotiations
During the second session of the UN Ad Hoc Committee which is negotiating a potential United Nations Cybercrime Treaty, Privacy International made three joint interventions. The second session took place in Vienna from 30 May to 10 June.
In the first joint intervention, Privacy International, the Electronic Frontier Foundation and Human Rights Watch made general remarks on the scope of the crimes to be covered in the proposed treaty.
In the second joint intervention, Privacy International and the Electronic Frontier Foundation raised concerns about the risk of the treaty criminalising legitimate security research or whistleblowing.
In the third joint intervention, Privacy International and the Electronic Frontier Foundation addressed questions related to safeguards and procedural measures to be included in the proposed treaty.
