Fifth e-Crime Congress in UK

I’m just back from the fifth e-Crime Congress in London. This event promotes international co-operation – and provides an opportunity to discuss how to stem the growing tide of cyber crime. Speakers and participants included law enforcement professionals from around the world, members of various national governements, and representatives from the worlds of business and IT security.

Our contribution was a presentation on crimeware and some thoughts on the possible impact of Web 2.0. There’s been a massive increase in social networking web sites, such as LinkedIn, MySpace etc. Many of them have a huge number of users uploading personal information, making such sites a juicy target for cyber criminals. It’s got to be a priority to have co-ordinated, effective measures in place before the explosion in social networking sites before the inevitable corresponding explosion in cybercrime.
