You know what's going to happen. There will be confusion about which organisation will be tasked with investigating your case of cyber crime, and the organisation concerned will be severely under funded to the point where they turn round and say "you haven't lost enough money for us to investigate it, join the queue".
Internet crime has been around for years and it's only now the Police, the Government decide to form a group to investigate it.
According to another article I have just read, the staff complement of the new unit will be 45, made up from Police officers and IT experts.
So less than 45 staff will be IT experts. How many e-crimes can 45 IT experts investigate in a year?
Exactly as I predicted in my earlier post, way underfunded.
How is it, when it comes to IT, on just about everything, this Labour government manages to screw up in a big way?
Good job they haven't set up an email address to which we can report cyber crimes, would take too long to have them completely snowed under with the 419 scams alone.
