Cyber crime reduction partnership draws on established expertise

Kaspersky Lab UK : 18 March, 2013  (Technical Article)
Kaspersky Lab comments on the Cyber Crime Reduction Partnership initiative in the UK and commends the approach of drawing on established available expertise through partnerships
Cyber crime reduction partnership draws on established expertise

Following the recent announcement of the Cyber Crime Reduction Partnership by James Brokenshire, David Emm, Senior Security Researcher at Kaspersky Lab made the following comments:

The announcement of the Cyber Crime Reduction Partnership is a step in the right direction for reducing the risks of cybercrime in the UK. There are already a few large organisations that want to take the lead in the fight against cybercrime on an international level: the Action Against Terrorism Unit (a department of the United Nations), the recently-opened European Cybercrime Centre at Europol and Interpol, which plans to open a Cyber Interpol division office in Singapore in 2014. Many countries already have CERTs (Computer Emergency Response Teams) and cybercrime laws, but in many cases law enforcement is faced with shortages of funds and resources, which makes the fight harder.

It is essential that the UK looks at how it can develop partnerships that draw on the expertise in this arena to help keep the population’s personal and private data out of the hands of criminals. It’s clear that fighting cybercrime today is no longer a job that any single entity can effectively perform by itself. Cybercrime transcends geopolitical borders, meaning attackers can target victims on the other side of the world. But law enforcement agencies have jurisdictional limits and are unable to conduct investigations alone across borders. So logically they should cooperate with their colleagues in other countries.

Kaspersky Lab already cooperates with IMPACT (the International Multilateral Partnership Against Cyber Threats - the cyber-security executing arm of the United Nations' International Telecommunication Union) in the fight against cybercrime. In my personal experience I know that cooperation amongst different parties can help immensely in this struggle. Through our expertise we provide advanced technical information regarding widespread or dangerous malware, which with the help of IMPACT, can be placed in the context of current legal investigations or be used to initiate new cases.
