3 Big data security analytics techniques

The G8 group of industrialised nations is gathering in Paris this week to discuss the growing threat of cybercrime.

Academics, industrialists, civil libertarians and others will be discussing ways of tackling Net crime. The three-day summit is being held among a heightened awareness of the problem following the global damage inflicted by the "Love Bug".

While the "Love Bug" will, no doubt, help focus the minds of those attending the meeting, there is a danger that it could influence the proceedings and lead to a tougher stance on Net regulation. Any such move would, no doubt, be hotly contested by the civil liberty groups attending the G8 bash.

And according to Reuters, it sounds as if the summit is already facing discord. The US, it seems, is keen to create an international cyber police force to patrol the Net for scamsters and pervs, while Europe would be happier for less intrusive methods. ®
