UK announces cyber crime court in London

Last night, it was announced by the Lord Chancellor that a new flagship court, specifically designed to tackle cyber crime, fraud, and economic crime, will reinforce the UK’s reputation as a world-leading legal centre.

Commenting on this, Dan Pitman, senior solutions architect at Alert Logic, said “This is certainly a positive move. Cyber crime suffers from being perceptually segregated from traditional crime from the viewpoint of the public, and victims often don’t even contact legal and law enforcement organisations when affected. Specifically calling out Fleetbank House’s new role in that space will drive home that cyber crime is just that – crime.”
