Fighting cyber crime takes cooperation

Today’s Volkskrant published an article under the header “Cyber criminals run free too often”. The reason for this article is the presentation of a study by Faber organisatievernieuwing on behalf of two Dutch ministries: Economy and Security & Justice.

The study calls for further cooperation between cross jurisdictional LEAs and for Industry to take up responsibilities that come with the individual, respective tasks on hand. Here’s the link to the study “Phishing, Kinderporno and advanced-fee Internet fraud.

Followers of my work and blog will recall the across the board approach I’ve called for at the last IGF plenary session on security. The solution lies only for a very small part in cooperation on national level. The major international players need to set the standard on all accounts. This standard will trickle down into the national realm. As far as I’m concerned, let’s start talks at the upcoming 2011 IGF.

P.S. 11 January. In Webwereld (Webworld) a blog was posted on Fabers report that does not judge favourably on the level of technical background and on an oversight of commonly used encryption techniques that should be “flagged red” according to the report.

About Wout de Natris

As a consultant I specialise in establishing new and different relationships between industry, governments and law enforcement where internet safety and the fight against cyber crime are concerned. This makes me a bridge builder. Hence the blogs name. In this blog I intend to stress the need for interaction, cooperation and exchange of information in order to change the mentioned relationships. On offer: a comprehensive training on all non-technical aspects of spam enforcement and a cyber awareness presentation for companies and institutions
