The Congress is supported by the National Hi-Tech Crime Unit (NHTCU) and the Home Office for the third year and this year we are delighted to welcome the National Infrastructure Security Co-ordination Centre (NISCC) as an endorsing partner. The Congress will once again work towards a common goal: a safer digital world, a world in which the social and business benefits of the internet will be realised and maximised and a model that will dissuade organised crime from populating this frontier.

The theme of the 2005 Congress is securing business reputation – sustaining consumer confidence. Key issues that continue to challenge business effectiveness will be addressed and will include: emerging and existing threats to business confidence and reputation; evaluating electronic risk; compliance and corporate governance imperatives and a financial analysis of the corporate value of first rate e-security strategy.

Identity theft, phishing, fraud and forensics will also feature significantly as the Congress will provide practical examples of law enforcement operational success. The goal of this year’s Congress is to furnish all delegates with new models, solutions and strategies in order to create a safer and more profitable business environment and ultimately a safer society.

Uniquely, the Congress provides an opportunity for delegates representing government, law enforcement and business to develop effective partnerships. The Congress affords delegates the chance to work with senior representatives from national and international government as well as law enforcement agencies and corporations. Their mission: to create policies and strategies that will effectively combat the threat of hi-tech crime.


Delegates play a crucial role by participating in focused workshops debating and developing recommendations. These are discussed in plenary sessions. The aim of these workshops is to provide an interactive arena for experts from business, government and law enforcement to meet, identify and explore the necessary steps needed to ensure that organisational policies and procedures are available and implemented.

e-Crime Congress mission

To produce viable and quantifiable models and solutions for tackling specific risks posed by e-crime. Understanding vulnerability and identifying threats and applying solutions are critical in order to operate a secure, functional platform from which to run day-to-day operations and plan for the future.

· Afford delegates from the public and private sectors an appropriate and closed environment to come together and gain valuable insight through meeting experts, who understand the growing challenge in combating e-crime.

· To build trust and co-operation between the public and private sectors through the promotion of a spirit of co-operation and support. Public/private partnerships offer real scope to address e-crime concerns. Mutual trust has to be the basis for effective working relations and emphasis must be placed on the common objectives of preventing and reducing e-crime and combining expertise, resources and intelligence.

· To improve knowledge and awareness about the internal and external issues organisations face.

· To increase the strategic level of connectivity with government, law enforcement, intelligence services and service suppliers.

· Provide guidance for internal and external growth and success through debate and case studies on multi-disciplinary good practice.

· Encourage continuity and consistency of strategy and effort in combating e-crime.
