The adoption of the Directive 2014/41/EU on the European Investigation Order is considered a milestone for judicial cooperation in criminal matters in the European Union.
Two-year LIVE_FOR (Criminal Justice Access to Digital Evidences in the Cloud – LIVE_FORensics) project, co-funded by EU DG Justice, has identified the state of the art including the problems and obstacles for putting that Directive and the European Investigation Order to life, and enhanced the awareness among judicial authorities about the newest scientific and educational achievements in the selected domains (live forensic in cloud computing environments).
Six institutions with high reputation regarding their scientific and educational achievements from five EU countries participated in the project that started on 1st November 2016: Jozef Stefan Institute (Slovenia) as coordinator, and Vrije Universiteit Brussel (Belgium), Universitat Politecnica de Datalunya (Spain), Fachhochschule Albstadt Sigmaringen (Germany), Masaryk University (Czech Republic) and Universidad Autonoma de Madrid (Spain) as partners.
The project activities included analytical activities, educational and training activities, and awareness building. The main target groups of those activities were prosecutors, 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. Public deliverables that report the main results of those activities can be found in the Public deliverables section.
