But even if this all works out, does the country you want help from even have the correct or comparable legislation to make the act illegal to begin with?
The Council of Europe (not to be confused with the European Union/Commission) has worked tirelessly for several years to get different countries to adopt its version of a computer crime law. It may not be the most important aspect of dealing with cybercrime, but it is certainly one of the big ones.
More importantly, The Council of Europe has been doing it constantly and without fail. For that, it deserves a lot of credit. It recently released a list with a couple dozen countries and the state of their cybercrime legislation. It is very interesting;d I thank them for the work and cheer them on to keep it up in the future as well.
