Dear Sir/ Madam,

Many countries in Africa have made it a high priority to focus on developing cybercrime laws and policies capable to efficiently criminalize illegal cybercrime acts and allow effective international cooperation between criminal justice authorities, in line with international standards. Consequently, to fulfil their respective roles in increasingly complex environments, law enforcement officers, prosecutors, magistrates and judges require up to date skills and adequate tools, both technical and legal.

We are therefore honored to inform you that the African Union Commission (AUC) in cooperation with the Council of Europe will be co-organizing the 2nd edition of the African Cybercrime Forum. The Forum will be held virtually from 28 to 29 June 2021, focusing on:

* Cybercrime policies and legislative updates in Africa
* International cooperation on cybercrime and electronic evidence.
Participation in the Forum is expected to include officials from African Union Member States and specialized agencies across the continent. Some regional and international partners are also expected to join such as INTERPOL, the European Union, the Commonwealth Secretariat, UK FCO, the U.S. Department of Justice, among others.

In this regard, it gives us great pleasure to cordially invite you to participate in the subject Forum. Kindly find the registration platform at the following URL:
