Encrypted Data and the Privilege against Self-Incrimination

  • Mapping the Problem and Sharing Best Practices

Rome, 28 May 2018 – 29 May 2018

Event number:

Area of law:

Telecommunications Law


The use of encryption serves the legitimate need for privacy and security as well as the needs of business and governments for a safe and secure cyberspace. In practice, anyone can use encryption in order to secure and protect their personal data and communications. Encryption technologies are also exploited by criminals, however, in order to hide their data and potential evidence, protect their communications and conceal their financial transactions.

The aim of this event is to analyse the obstacles that encryption poses to effective cybercrime investigations and to consider the effects of dealing or failing to deal with the problems.

Key topics

  • Encrypted data: technical and legal issues
  • Demonstrations: how encryption works
  • Impact of encrypted files on Mutual Legal Assistance requests
  • Encryption: case law from the European Court of Human Rights
  • Encryption and transborder access to data
  • Encryption (and e-evidence): EU legislation in progress

Who should attend?

Defence lawyers, in-house counsel, judges, prosecutors, civil servants and policymakers active in the field of EU criminal law.
