AEP Networks Comments On Proposed Crowd Sourcing Method of Preventing Cyber Crime

AEP Networks : 17 December, 2010  (Technical Article)
The use of citizens in fighting cyber crime through new EU initiative set up to combat rising internet related crime is discussed by Mark Darvill of AEP Networks
Rob Wainwright has briefed a Lords EU sub-committee on plans for a European cyber crime centre and plans to ask millions of internet users across the EU to join the fight against cyber crime. The success of the crowd sourcing plan will hinge on funding being secured and how the European cyber crime centre is set up.

Mark Darvill of securtiy firm, AEP Networks says: "Sourcing information from the public to fight crime isn't a new concept, but it is an interesting development in the fight against cyber crime. Just like citizens play a part in keeping the streets safe, internet users will sit at the heart of the effort to clean up the internet. Because cyber crime morphs at an incredible rate, the only way crowd sourcing can be effective will be through continuous education around the latest threats.

"The internet sits at the heart of business, the economy, the military and national health systems, so keeping the internet a safe place shouldn't be the job of disparate law enforcement bodies. There needs to be a united effort to fight cyber crime, especially as we are seeing examples of cyber warfare.

"Cyber crime has advanced and Governments across Europe are upping the ante when it comes to fighting internet crime. For the EU Internal Security Strategy to be effective, Governments across Europe need to unite in the fight against cyber crime."

AEP Networks provides the highest grade security technologies to Government, military and enterprise organisations to support their mission critical applications and networks.
