Interpol to crack down on cyber crime

May 9, 2012

Houston Chronicle on May 8, 2012 released the following:

“DANIELLA CHESLOW, Associated Press

TEL AVIV, Israel (AP) — Interpol said Tuesday it is making the war against cyber crime a main priority this year as online fraud crosses borders and increases in scope.

Khoo Boon Hui, president of the global police network, told a conference of 49 European member states that cyber crime is becoming more transnational. He pointed to a study published in March by the London Metropolitan University that found 80 percent of online crime is connected to cross-border organized gangs.

“Organized crime is now able to recruit members from countries without diplomatic ties to commit crimes overseas operating from temporary safe bases in third countries equipped with the latest technology,” he said.

Hui said Malaysian police last month arrested more than 200 cyber criminals from China and Taiwan who operated online scams through two syndicates under the instructions of a common Taiwanese boss.

By using temporary safe bases around the far East, the online scammers netted billions of dollars via soccer and gambling websites along with credit card and bank fraud schemes, he said. He said hackers even penetrated the Interpol website this year.

Hui said cyber crime costs Europe about 750 billion euros, or more than $977 billion, a year. Israel alone deals with more than 1,000 Web attacks a minute, he said.

To help train police worldwide in online law enforcement, Hui said Interpol will open a cyber crime and digital security complex in Singapore in 2014.

This week’s conference also addressed other issues including international terrorism, the drug trade, and human trafficking.”

INTERPOL European conference builds on regional strength to combat global crimes

May 8, 2012

INTERPOL on May 8, 2012 released the following:

“TEL AVIV, Israel – Developing innovative solutions through building on past experience is key in identifying and addressing future crime threats, chiefs of police and ministers from throughout Europe heard on the opening day of INTERPOL’s 41st European Regional Conference in Tel Aviv.

With transnational issues including cybercrime, terrorism, organized crime, human trafficking, illegal immigration and trafficking in illicit goods high on the agenda of the three-day meeting (8 – 10 May), some 110 senior law enforcement officials from 49 countries and eight international organizations will discuss how to build on regional cooperation and expertise to boost global security.

The Commissioner of the Israeli Police, Inspector General Yohanan Danino, said INTERPOL provided a network of cooperation between the police forces of the world.

“Our language, our uniform and our badges may differ, but the message is the same, we are all committed to the same cause which is the essence of our work, which is to serve.

“This INTERPOL meeting which brings together senior European law enforcement officials will provide us with a stronger platform for our joint efforts in tackling crime and terrorism,” concluded Commissioner Danino.

Addressing the delegates, INTERPOL President Khoo Boon Hui said that learning from European expertise and experiences helps ensure that all INTERPOL member countries keep abreast of the latest trends and developments, particularly in combating cybercrime.

“Criminal gangs now find that transnational and cybercrime are far more rewarding and profitable than other riskier forms of making money,” said INTERPOL President Khoo Boon Hui.

“Globalization and the development of the virtual world offer new and fertile grounds for criminals to ply their illegal trade and commit crimes.

“Our ability to address both known and unknown threats effectively and efficiently serves to further cement our Organization’s position as the leader in securing global safety, and in shaping the security landscape,” concluded President Khoo.

With the INTERPOL Global Complex for Innovation due to open its doors in Singapore in 2014, delegates will be updated on the close cooperation with Europol which will soon launch the European Cybercrime Centre, and how the two organizations are liaising to ensure the widest possible support to law enforcement regionally and globally.”
