Indian conference on Cybercrime demands global monitoring agency

Finjan Software : 14 September, 2007  (Technical Article)
Cybercrime conference in Dehli develops plan for international standards for law enforcement and agency for global monitoring
The organisers of a major Indian cybercrime conference have called for the creation of a global monitoring agency, as well as the standardisation of electronic crime laws on an international basis.

The New Delhi event, which was organised by Indian's CBI (Central Bureau of Investigation), has formulated a five step plan to help ensure global co-operation between various country cybercrime, law enforcement and allied agencies around the world.

In his presentation, CBI superintendent Rakesh Aggarwal said that, whilst Internet-enabled cybercrime is effectively borderless, most current solutions to the problem are country or region-specific.

Commenting on the results of the conference, Yuval Ben-Itzhak, CTO of pro-active Web security specialist Finjan, said that CBI's aims are admirable and should be supported by relevant public and private sector organisations worldwide.

'Here at Finjan we were especially pleased that the CBI superintendent identified that some parts of the private sector do not always report cybercrimes to the relevant authorities,' he said.

'Rakesh was also right on the button when he said that the public sector sometimes fails to make full use of the technical expertise available from the private sector,' he added.

Ben-Itzhak went on to say that creating a global cybercrime monitoring agency - operating on a democratic basis like the United Nations - is something the whole IT security industry needs to work towards.

'This isn't about creating another set of CERT agencies as, good though they are, they tend to be organised on a country and/or regional basis. We agree that there needs to be a global body to co-ordinate the ongoing battle against cybercrime, which is why Finjan I adding its weight to supporting the CBI-led initiative,' he explained.
