Cybercrime – why it requires a complete paradigm shift… We’ve got to stop playing the geographical card!
Technical Level (3 being the highest score): 1

Cybercrime has been enormously successful because it operates in a borderless world with borderless intent. In fact, when it comes to consider borders it's generally looking at safe havens, locations without treaties, using jurisdictional boundaries as obstructions to investigative efforts.

Governments and law enforcement agencies are so far behind because they’re fundamentally reactive and they view the world in terms of their operating responsibility which is dictated by geography.

This session will explore why a primarily geographically defined view of the world will always fail when attempting to compete, battle, combat, repel, resist the endeavours of cybercrime.

A geographical view is a lonely view, a global view is a collective perspective where one may find many allies. Why will changing our geographical perspective better prepare us for the global challenge of cybercrime?
