FBI Criticises UK ISPs Over CyberCrime

Posted: 25th Jan, 2005 By: MarkJ
One of the USA's FBI special agents, Ed Gibson, has attacked the UK bases of global ISP's (AOL, MSN etc.) for failing to do enough against cyber crime and hiding behind domestic laws:

Gibson said such obstacles can delay law enforcement efforts by months at a time and singled out the ISPs and their regulation for doing too little to ease the process.

Many of the large US-based ISPs are hiding behind domestic laws and distancing themselves from their UK responsibilities, he said.

"Why on earth do we not require that ISPs conform with the laws of this country?" asked Gibson, who said UK law enforcement are unable to go into businesses registered in the US and make use of the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act (RIPA) to access information that could aid an investigation.

The special agent made his presentation while speaking at the Internet Crime Conference in London. More @ Silicon.
