EC Approves ENISA CyberCrime Force
By: MarkJ - 25 November, 2003 (9:16 AM)

The European Commission (EC) has given its approved to a pan-European cybercrime think tank known as the European Network and Information Security Agency (ENISA), which will begin operating from next year:

The Commission acknowledged in launching the agency that an increasingly electronic society has rendered security a problem that affects all European nations but the differing paces and approaches to internet and network security among member states has created problems in the past problems that it hopes ENISA will be able to rectify.

The agency isn't intended to be a single cybercrime-combating force for the whole of Europe but will aid cooperation between the various European high-tech crime units, as well as acting as a central knowledge and research resource for security on the continent.

It'll be interesting to see whether ENISA can better combat Internet crimes without removing yet more privacy and freedom from individual surfers. More @ Silicon.
