    Dubai Police have urged the authorities to speed up legislation
    governing cyber crime.
    This was one of the recommendations made during an open discussion at
    the Dubai Police Officers' Club yesterday headed by Maj. Gen. Dhahi
    Khalfan Tamim, Dubai Police Chief, in which a number of police
    officers and IT experts took part.
    During the discussion, Maj. Gen. Dhahi stressed the need for exchange
    of the latest technologies and knowledge related to IT between the law
    enforcement forces and IT experts.
    This would enable authorities to follow up and curb cyber crime, which
    has seen "an increasing trend taking place alongside the e-government
    initiative era".
    The discussion included two IT lectures which highlighted 'Pro-blems
    and Difficulties Encounter-ing e-government Transactions' and 'How to
    Protect Websites from Hackers', followed by a discussion and a number
    of recommendations made by the officers.
    The recommendations included urging the authorities to take severe
    punitive measures against hackers and IT offenders, enhance and boost
    cooperation between IT experts and Forensic Justice, and lay down
    rules to control the use of Internet cafes by young people.
