NHTCU Rejects UK ISP/LINX Criticism

Posted: 06th Apr, 2004 By: MarkJ
The National Hi-Tech Crime Unit (NHTCU) has rejected last weeks criticism by the London Internet Exchange (LINX), which claimed that Britain didn't have enough qualified police officers to deal with e-Crime threats:

However, according to Hynds, every local police force has its own computer crime unit, which was not the case four years ago.

"These are staffed by specialist officers who are experienced in network investigation and computer forensics," Hynds said. Many of these officers have been heavily involved with child-pornography investigations such as Operation Ore, and it has been claimed that this work has taken up most of their time.

The British government is in the process of formulating a new e-crime strategy, which should be published this summer. This strategy could include an increase in the resources available for fighting e-crime, in recognition that it is a growing problem.
