In the past decade, advances in communications technologies and the “informatization” of society have converged as never before in human history. This has given rise to the industrialization of a type of crime where the commodity—personal information—moves far too quickly for conventional law enforcement methods to keep pace.

To tackle cybercrime effectively, establish multidimensional public-private collaborations between law enforcement agencies, the information technology industry, information security organizations, internet companies and financial institutions.

Cybercrime is not restricted to one single industry. Indeed, cyber attacks through attackers’ professional connection to the financial sector may be experienced by every single internet user and result in huge material or/and immaterial damage. More must be done to harness the intelligence of network and information security stakeholders, not only to provide a more accurate and comprehensive assessment of cybercrime, but also to ensure that responses are effective and timely.

To tackle cybercrime efficiently, it is essential to establish active partnerships and cooperation between the private sector, information security organizations, financial institutions and public institutions to investigate cybercrime, to supervise financial market transactions and to enforce laws. Without efficient private-public cooperation, cybercrime will never be tackled effectively.

The private sector needs to be assured of a confidential relationship in which information can be exchanged for investigative and intelligence purposes.

Collaboration, particularly with the information technology sector, is needed to identify features of future communications technologies liable to criminal exploitation. Law enforcement agencies must work in partnership with those who will influence the future business and operating environment, so that all concerned can better anticipate changes in criminal behavior and technological misuse.
