Half of all fraud that takes place in Britain now occurs online, the cost to victims rising to £27 billion a year.

The group Action Fraud received 46,000 reports of cybercrime in 2012, demonstrating the reach of this increasingly sophisticated electronic form of criminal activity. It is not just individuals who are feeling the impacts of such crime, 93% of large corporations and 73% of small firms reported a breach in cyber security in the last year.

Globally cybercrime is now thought to be costing in the region of $300 billion to $1trillion per year. Whilst the financial stakes of such criminality is high, there are also socio-political consequences. For example it is suggested that there is growing evidence that the revenue garnered by cybercriminals is being used to finance the activities of terror groups, including those of al-Qaeda.

Cyber attacks also pose an increasing risk to national security, which could led to the military being ‘fatally compromised’, and the defence select committee has urged the MOD to make the development of rules of engagement for cyber operations an urgent priority.


This conference aims to explore some of the urgent issues faced by the growing threat of cybercrime, offering current insight into case law, governmental policy, as well as the crucial practical issues of how such crime can be detected, investigated, prosecuted and managed.


Expert speakers in the field of police corruption and misconduct will deliver presentations in topical subjects, including:

Cybercrime legislation in the UK

Evidential issues, ensuring data integrity

RIPA authorisations for online surveillance

Transnational access to data (both direct access, and co-operation with foreign LEAs and ISPs)

Investigative techniques (including network investigations).

Practical issues of defending/prosecuting at trial.


This event is a must attend for all those working in the area of cyber crime policing, as well as legal professionals, academics and policymakers.
