Synopsis

Archived report. This report was archived in 2006 and has not been updated. As the exploitation of the potential of the Internet increased, so has its criminal exploitation. This has taken many forms, from simple credit card theft through complex fraud through destructive activities such as viruses and hacking to physically dangerous activities such as the Nigerian Scam and paedophilia. The financial and social effects of these crimes have grown so significant that governments have set up monitoring and investigating organisations and are seeking forms of legislation to overcome them.

Purchase with Confidence

Paul, May I congratulate you on a very successful and enjoyable afternoon with the Minister. In providing the roundtable discussions between government and industry, it highlighted the strong interest by stakeholders in Broadband and its implementation but it also presented us with other issues and opportunities that we need to address.

Dominic Schipano, CITT
