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
