Cybercrime Convention

Hacking on its way to become a criminal act?

Within the topic of international regulation attempts in the field of Cybercrime (CoE Convention on Cybercrime & EU Council Framework Decision on Attacks against Information Systems) a number of Member States is planning to implement "hacking"-provisions in their national criminal law. This development could lead to a criminal sanctions not only for hacking acts committed with criminal intent but also for testing network security.

The presentation is giving an overview about the specification of the international regulations – focussing the chances for the Member States to make restrictions to the specifications in order to keep more liberal criminal law provisions.
