Computer crime cost UK businesses £2.4bn last year and this figure is likely to rise unless companies do more to protect themselves.
On 1 April next year, the UK’s National Hi-tech Crime Unit (NHTCU) will become part of the newly created Serious and Organised Crime Agency (SOCA). The move illustrates how technology is becoming an everyday part of crime detection.
It will work with the National Criminal Intelligence Service, the National Crime Squad and parts of HM Customs & Excise, and the Home Office, involved in combating drugs and immigration. – PCW Magazine
