http://www.gulf-news.com/Articles/news.asp?ArticleID=41016 Dubai By Haya Farouk Al Ras 13-02-2002 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. - ISN is currently hosted by Attrition.org To unsubscribe email majordomoat_private with 'unsubscribe isn' in the BODY of the mail.
