Cyber crime and international successes in cooperation

Today a very short blogpost. To show that international success in fighting cyber crime is possible, I’d like to point out the cooperation between the Dutch National High Tech Crime Team and their partners in Armenia. The Russian responsible for the Bredolab botnet was sentenced to jail for four years.

A feat to commemorate for a short while, before those responsible for the success start working on the next success.

The Bredolab case shows that success is possible and should work as an example for others. International cooperation is adamant if the world wants to tackle the problems around cyber security and cyber crime. This is not just about seeing something and sending it cross-border, but mostly about creating possibilities to cooperate and coordinate on international challenges post to law-enforcement, whether from a police, regulatory, CERT or civil law background.

This case shows that it can be done.

P.s. Lately I’ve experienced severe problems with access to WordPress. It seems I’ve overcome this, so expect regular blogposts again.

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.
