This is the seventh issue of the Cybercrime Judicial Monitor (CJM), published once per year and distributed to judicial and law enforcement authorities active in the field of combating cybercrime and cyber-enabled crime. It is produced on the basis of information provided by members of the European Judicial Cybercrime Network (EJCN).
The CJM contains four main sections. The first section covers legislative developments in the area of cybercrime, cyber-enabled crime and electronic evidence in 2021. The judicial analysis section presents brief summaries of court rulings rendered by courts in various EU Member States and non-EU countries. The third section covers the developments within the European Union in the past year, in relation to data retention. Finally, the last section is dedicated to this issue’s topic of interest – ransomware investigations.
All issues of the CJM are available on the Eurojust website.
