The European Commission is looking to create a new talking shop to thrash out the issues affecting cybercrime.

The Justice and Home Affairs Commissioner, António Vitorino, is expected to announce proposals for a European Union Cybercrime Forum next month during a keynote speech at the European ISP Association Conference in Brussels.

The commissioner will tell those attending the conference that the forum would assist the EC in formulating cybercrime legislation.

It would also be responsible for developing a range of non-legislative initiatives.

Hans Leemans, president of EuroISPA, said: "EuroISPA strongly supports the initiative of the European Commission to set up the forum.

"Effective and proportionate legislation is needed in order to boost confidence in Internet use and a transparent consultative process is the most effective way of achieving this," he said. ®
