Police Can't Keep Up With Cyber Criminals

from the online-crime-rises,-news-at-eleven dept

So, law enforcement officials in Europe are admitting that they simply can't keep up with cyber criminals, as organized crime has moved online. They say that the police don't have the resources or expertise to keep up. Doesn't this seem like an open invitation for criminals to focus on online crime?

    Probably not

    More likely, it will eventually turn out to support a request for more money/resources for this type of law enforcement.
    There is a sense of urgency amid the law enforcement community to beef up its digital sleuthing capabilities.

    See? It's already starting.

    I sense the oldest trick in the book here -- mislead people into thinking they can get away with something, so that their movements can be tracked.
