Die Rückschläge bei internationalen Abkommen können
Europas militanteste Regierung bei der Hochrüstung der
gesetzlich ermächtigten Behörden nicht beirren.

BRITAIN is to get an elite 20m unit of "cybercops" to fight
internet fraudsters, paedophiles and hackers, the government
will announce tomorrow.

Jack Straw, the home secretary, will tell the Commons that
the group will include officers based with every police force.

The National High-Tech Crime Unit will be the largest and
most sophisticated of its type in Europe, rivalled only by an
organisation run by the Federal Bureau of Investigation in
America. It will start work next year.

It will include staff taken from the police, customs, the
National Crime Squad and the National Criminal Intelligence
Service (NCIS).
...
Charles Clarke, the Home Office minister, who addressed an
NCIS conference on financial crime at Warwick last week,
said yesterday: "Cybercrime is one of the most important
and difficult challenges facing law enforcement. It can only be
contested using top technical skills. That is what this
government is committed to."
...
The Commons intelligence and security committee, chaired
by Tom King, the former Northern Ireland secretary, revealed
that MPs knew about the bug five hours before the "cyber-
spooks", who failed to warn American colleagues in time to
prevent users from turning on their computers at the start of
the day.

The anti-virus role will now pass to the new unit. Based at
NCIS's south London headquarters, it will also have
departments in all of the police forces in England and Wales,
and possibly also in Scotland.
...
The Home Office will fund the unit's 20m budget and a head
will be announced later this year.
