Law bodies call for international cyber crime action

Law bodies call for international cyber crime action

Various law enforcement agencies spoke at a London-based conference recently, when they asked for a global stance on tackling cyber criminals.

A panel featuring experts in law enforcement focused on policing cyber crime in the  ‘Know your adversary: Who is the cyber-criminal?’ keynote at London’s InfoSec Europe. The NCA, Europol and the FBI confessed to struggles revolving around attribution and encryption. Brian Honan, from BH Consulting, moderated the discussion.

Michael Driscoll, assistant legal attaché for the FBI, said that the main worries surround evidence gathering due to the global style of cyber attacks.

He explained:

“The realm has changed when it comes to looking at the criminal threats for us. We are no longer back in the days when we’re working on bank robberies and organised crime, where we could rely on law enforcement to obtain records needed, and seek out those responsible.”

He went on to say that evidence gathering becomes more difficult as things move further and further towards a cyber realm, with security professionals seeing such information before they do.

Speaking further, he explained that the agency is now involved in more conversations on the issue – an area he admits wasn’t a strong point before now.

Security personnel have the upper hand in the current climate when it comes to fighting cyber crime. That’s why it’s so important that UK firms make cyber security jobs available to such personnel, in order to protect their own data and reduce the chances that they too will become a victim.
