Budapest Convention on Cybercrime

Budapest Convention on Cybercrime

March 4, 2018

In 2006, the United States Senate ratified the Budapest Convention on Cybercrime.  In addition to criminalizing hacking, the Convention also provides a basis for law enforcement authorities to compel internal service providers to monitor an individual's internet activities in realtime.   Article 20 states that:

 

Each Party shall adopt such legislative and other measures as may be necessary to empower its competent authorities to:

   a. collect or record through the application of technical means on the territory of that Party, and

   b. compel a service provider, within its existing technical capability:

       i. to collect or record through the application of technical means on the territory of that Party; or

       ii. to co-operate and assist the competent authorities in the collection or recording of,

traffic data, in real-time, associated with specified communications in its territory transmitted by means of a computer system.
