1st LIVE_FOR Educational Workshop

It is a great pleasure to invite you to be part of the upcoming "European Investigation Order and digital forensics" training events. The training program was developed within the LIVE_FOR project.

Project content and activities:
Two-year LIVE_FOR (Criminal Justice Access to Digital Evidences in the Cloud - LIVE_FORensics) project, co-funded by EU DG Justice, aims to identify the state of the art including problems and obstacles for putting the Directive and the European Investigation Order to life, and enhance awareness among judicial authorities about the newest scientific and educational achievements in the selected domains (live forensic in cloud computing environments).

The project activities include analytical activities, educational and training activities, as well as awareness building. The main target groups are prosecutors, judges, law enforcement agencies, investigators, civil entities working in the prevention of cybercrime and cyberterrorism, business entities, and higher educational institutions with programs in information security, fight against cybercrime, and digital forensics.

For further information visit our website www.live-for.eu

Key aspects of the workshop:

  • EIO - Procedure, Scope, Issuing, Transmitting, Practical Issues and Experiences
  • Future steps - Plans of the European Commission to simplify judicial cooperation
  • Digital Forensics - General overview, Gathering evidence from cloud services
  • Simulation game - How to issue an EIO on Digital Forensics measures
The workshop will be held in two parts. First part will be held as webinar focussing on the procedure of the EIO as well as basics of digital forensics. This part is scheduled for March 7, 2018, 10:00 am.

During the second workshop, participants shall apply their theoretical knowledge in a simulation game, connecting both, legal and technical sides of cross border access, to evidence in the cloud. Therefore, the second workshop will be held as an attendance training, taking place in Brussels on March 14, 2018, 9:15 am.

We recommend participating in both workshop, however participation in only one workshop is possible as well. Please find the attached draft agenda and the LIVE_FOR project description for your information.

  • Toma Milieskaite, Seconded National Expert to the European Commission, DG Justice / Researcher on EIO
  • Lodewijk van Zwieten, Public Prosecutor on Cybercrime, Seconded National Expert to Eurojust
  • Emmanuelle Legrand, Investigative Judge, European Commission DG Justice
