Cybersecurity, data protection, misinformation and privacy issues are quickly moving to the forefront of national and regional priorities and policies.

Connected businesses, governments, and individuals have moved traditionally physical and in-person transactions into the virtual realm. Not surprisingly crime and criminal activities have also moved online, presenting significant human and economic costs and other challenges. These developments have highlighted the essential need to strengthen judicial understanding of technology, the Internet and its evolving impact on society, the economy and the rule of law.

This edition of the APEX Justice and Technology Series explores Evolving Judicial Practice for the Digital Age. The virtual event brings together leading jurists, technologists, lawyers and scholars to share insights, experiences and research on how technology generally, and the Internet specifically, are impacting the courts, justice delivery, the legal profession and legal practitioners.

The Forum is a collaboration between regional and international Internet and Justice sector organizations. It provides an interdisciplinary platform for stakeholders to discuss how

technological innovations and trends are impacting the Justice Sector; to gain expert insights into evolving strategies and best practices; and to share experiences with peers and colleagues from across the world.

The Caribbean Agency for Justice Solutions, APEX, in collaboration with the American Registry for Internet Numbers, ARIN; and the Internet Registry for Latin America and the Caribbean, LACNIC; and the Caribbean Telecommunications Union will provide online resources to help justice sector stakeholders interpret and implement measures and policies that work best for their jurisdictions.

Join us as we advance our regional justice community through this timely new forum and seize opportunities for collaboration, development, and growth.
