The Third Session of "Cyber Law Enforcement: Challenges and Solutions for Electronic Forensics" Was Successfully Held in RUC

On the afternoon of October 30, the third session of "Cyber Law Enforcement: Challenges and Solutions for Electronic Forensics" was successfully held in the academic lecture hall of the fourth floor of the Information Building of Renmin University of China. At the meeting, representatives from various competent departments, network law scholars, electronic forensics experts, network service platform representatives and electronic forensics platform representatives discussed the current situation, difficulties and countermeasures of electronic forensics.

The opening ceremony was hosted by professor LIU Pinxin, Deputy Director of the Criminal Law Research Center of Renmin University of China. First of all, professor LIU Pinxin warmly welcomed all the participants from the academic and practical circles of electronic evidence. Afterwards, professor LIU introduced the background and practical significance of the seminar, and said that electronic forensics is a new topic in the field of evidence law. In the context of the current era, it is impossible to cope with the complex and volatile judicial practical problems and respond effectively to the challenges of international competition without going through the network. It is hoped that through this seminar, the achievements and problems in electronic evidence collection will be fully discussed, so that China's judicial activities will face international competition in a more leisurely manner.

Then WANG Ying, Associate Professor of the Institute for the Future Rule of Law of the Law School of Renmin University of China, delivered the opening speech. Wang Ying, an associate professor, said that the Institute for the Future Rule of Law of Renmin University of China has been established for more than a year and has been committed to creating a research platform for the close integration and cross-integration of new technologies and law. As an important part of the new technology, electronic forensics will bring a new reform to the judicial field, and it is also of great significance to the study of the future rule of law.

The conference is divided into two units, with the theme of "From Practice to System, From Technology to Platform".

Unit 1: From Practice to System

The speech of the first unit was presided over by professor LIU Pinxin, Deputy Director of the Criminal Law Research Center of Renmin University of China.

GU Jian, Former Inspector of the 11th Bureau of the Ministry of Public Security, made a speech under the title of "China's Construction of Electronic Evidence Rule". He first briefly reviewed the development of China's electronic-evidence-related legislation and introduced the establishment and improvement of electronic evidence system in the new situation. Then, he took the case handling practice of the public security department as the entry point, pointed out the difficulties of evidence collection in the investigation work at the present stage, and put forward legislative suggestions in the electronic evidence field in the age of big data.

ZHAO Xianwei, Deputy Director of the Procuratorial Technical Information Research Center of the Supreme People's Procuratorate, made a keynote speech on "International Evidence Collection of Cybersecurity Law Enforcement". Electronic evidence obtained remotely for international targets, mostly in the form of remote records, may be a "lifesaver" for detection, but there are risks, he said, and the legality of electronic evidence needs to be guaranteed through standard operations. At the same time, the application of electronic evidence is not only a problem of law, but also a problem of technology. We need to comprehensively deal with these two factors and explore ways to solve international evidence collection problems through transnational judicial assistance.

Yan Shaomin, secretary general of jingdong legal research institute, gave a speech entitled "cross-border law enforcement forensics in the digital economy". She analyzed the legislation on electronic data in the United States, the European Union, Canada and other countries and regions. She believes that mastering the control of networks and data is of great significance in global competition. She said China needs to further consolidate and strengthen data control and defend online sovereignty.

LU Xiaohua, Director of the Science and Technology Procuratorial Department of the People's Procuratorate of Haidian district, Beijing, delivered a keynote speech on "Examination and Determination of Electronic Evidence". She believes that electronic evidence plays an increasingly important role in criminal case review and determination, and even becomes the king of evidence, which poses a new challenge to the prosecution's evidence collection. She pointed out that electronic evidence should meet the criteria of rapidity, accuracy, comprehension, legitimacy and relevance in the extraction process to play a better role in the case.

XIE Hongjun, Senior Vice President of Matrix Element Technology Co., LTD, gave a keynote speech on "Data Privacy Protection Issues and Countermeasures of Network Security".

He read the legislation from the legislative background, the scope of application and other aspects, and proposed our future legislation in this field.

Professor LIANG Bin, Professor of Information College of Renmin University of China and expert of Electronic Data Judicial Identification Center of Renmin University of China, made a thematic report entitled "Security of Artificial Intelligence System and Possible Threat to Forensics". By analyzing the machine learning system, professor LIANG Bin proposed the existing threats of network big data security and introduced the recent progress made by his team in this field.

XIE Junze, Secretary General of the Research Center of Cyber Crime and Security of Renmin University of China and expert of electronic data judicial practice of Renmin University of China, delivered a keynote speech on "Artificial Intelligence of Network Forensics". He pointed out that network forensics needs to be comprehensively constructed in aspect of big data business model, artificial intelligence network forensics system and other aspects. Meanwhile, as a cross-disciplinary field of law and technology, the model design should be comprehensively evaluated from the perspective of judicial demand.

XU Fei, an associate professor at the Institute of Information Engineering of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, delivered a keynote speech on ¡°Law Enforcement Jurisdiction for Cross-border Electronic Forensics". She introduced the issues of sovereignty in cyberspace as well as the outstanding issues facing the exercise of jurisdiction in cross-border forensics work, and pointed out that these problems need to be solved by countries through strengthening judicial assistance.

Finally, professor LIU Pinxin summarized and pointed out that electronic evidence is a new subject growth point and an important node of social governance in the context of the development of law in science and technology. In today's ¡°Internet + big data + artificial¡± intelligence era, electronic forensics in particular needs to achieve a great breakthrough in the integration of law and technology. This calls for fruitful cooperation between government, industry, universities and research institutes. We hope that electronic evidence can be a lever to leverage the network earth, so that the rule of law in the network will go far!
