Business calls for central IT crime agency

FTSE 100 IT heads say central body must be formed to report IT crime to

Business is growing frustrated with the lack of an organisation to which they
can report IT crime.

The FT reports that the Corporate IT Forum, which represents about
half of the FTSE 100, said it was concerned the government was not taking cyber
crime seriously as it had not formed such a central agency.

‘There is no source to go to to report e-crime, other than the local police
station, and they have very little understanding of it,’ said David Roberts, the
forum’s chief executive.

The Serious Organised Crime Agency is the first point of contact for IT crime
but does not take such reports directly and only follows up on larger cases.
