CYBER CRIMINALS TOO SAVVY FOR GLOBAL POLICE

Source: GlobeTechnology.com

Posted on March 23, 2002

      Global law enforcement cannot cope with savvy cyber criminals who are quick to exploit technology to create havoc, top officials at the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation said on Wednesday.

      "Technology permits cyber crimes to occur at the speed of light and law enforcement must become more sophisticated in uncovering them," FBI assistant director Ronald Eldon told a conference on fighting organized crime in Hong Kong.

      Mr. Eldon said international protocals and procedures relating to cyber crime investigations were inadequate. "Government must respond not at government time but at Internet time," said Mr. Eldon.

      "Legal procedure varies from jurisdiction to jurisdiction and the availability of resources and equipment to deal with encryption is another issue," he said.

      Mark Pollitt, chief of the FBI computer analysis response team, told Reuters in an interview the volume of digital evidence which the FBI has to ferret through has ballooned. "In the past two years, we have looked at ten times more digital evidence," he said.

      As information crosses borders with the increased use of handheld devices and Web-enabled mobile phones, enforcement agencies and governments need to find quicker ways of working with each other to take care of legal requirements and diplomacy. "Cyber crime is truly a global security issue as fundamentally, we all share the same vulnerabilities," he said.

      "As an example, if there is a problem with a piece of software, it will affect a Hong Kong bank as much as a New York bank as all banks talk to each other," he said.

      Mr. Eldon called for an expansion of a round-the-clock system for cyber contacts that currently links only the most advanced industralised nations. "We need to build partnership with private industry and academics in order to keep our technical capabilities at the cutting edge," he added.
