International law enforcement agencies are set to join forces to help in the fight against organized cybercrime
International law enforcement agencies are set to join forces to provide an insight into the work of the world's police forces in the fight against organized online crime.
The worldwide cooperation between international law enforcement agencies fighting cybercrime will be demonstrated at the VB2007 anti-malware conference in Vienna on September 21 as members of the FBI, Australian Federal Police and the UK's CPNI take to the stage in a panel discussion.
Led by David Thomas, the FBI's deputy assistant director for science and technology, panel members Stacy Arruda, supervisory special agent, Cyber Crime Squad, FBI, Kevin Zuccato, director, Australian high tech crime centre, and Mark Oram, senior manager, Centre for the Protection of National Infrastructure, will discuss the current state of organized high-tech crime, the obstacles faced by law enforcement working across national jurisdictions, the working relationships between international task forces, the sharing of information and intelligence, future projects and more.
Helen Martin, editor of Virus Bulletin, commented: "VB is delighted to be hosting this panel discussion which offers delegates the unique opportunity to put their questions direct to those involved in enforcing the law.”
Martin added: "Questions have been raised by many recently - including in a report by the Science and Technology Committee of the UK's House of Lords - over the level of cooperation achieved internationally between task forces in the fight against organized online crime. This panel, coordinated by members of the FBI, allows delegates to hear about the current situation direct from those on the front line."
