International cooperation needs revising

Roger Halbheer, Microsofts worldwide security advisor, visited the UNODC conference on cyber crime this week. He draws his conclusions and in my opinion they are right on the dot. We can’t afford to wait and talk for years. Cyber criminality will have corrupted large parts of the world by then. The time to act is now, but there still seems a great reluctance at all sides to do so. Yes, there are major challenges, but to keep walking away from them is not going to change things for the better. Let’s start asap. I will get back to this topic at a later date.

Read Rogers conclusions here.

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
