The Leadership in Counter Terrorism (LinCT) 2014 Conference witnessed the bringing together of what has been described
as the finest collection of Cyber law enforcement experts across the globe. A panel chaired and facilitated by Jon Boutcher the Deputy National Cybercrime Lead for England & Wales hosted speakers
that included Joe Demarest, Assistant Director in charge of the Cyber Division of the FBI, Tim Morris, Assistant Commissioner of the Australian Federal Police, James Malizia Assistant Commissioner of
The Royal Canadian Mounted Police and Andy Archibald of the UK's National Crime Agency.
The conference also heard from leading cyber experts Noboru Nakatani Executive Director of Interpol's futuristic Global Complex for Innovation located in Singapore and Troels Oerting the head of The European Cyber Crime Unit. The line up was completed by Frank Cilluffo Director of the Homeland Security Policy Institute at the George Washington University and Marissa Kimball the Head of Cyber at Palantir.
The morning included a scenario with injects that teased out the international, jurisdictional, legislative and organisational challenges that cyber presents. The overwhelming message was the successful collaborative working that agencies and countries are driving to make cyberspace hostile to the criminal and safer for the citizen. What was repeatedly made clear was the need to challenge existing law enforcement approaches in delivering new innovative ways of protecting citizens and chasing down the criminals who operate on on the internet.
Jon Boutcher commented 'This group are the very top people in the business, their determination to share information and work together against those that exploit the internet or commit denial of service attacks is what will make the internet safer but we have much to do. We are forming alliances that go beyond what has been seen before and because of the nature of threat that is vital in winning the battle of the internet.'
Frank Cilluffo told the audience'Only a couple of years ago this type of gathering would not happen. The future of cyber is in safe hands with the quality of leaders now tackling the problem'
