ABSTRACT
Police and security professionals need to be trained under a common skills framework if they are to work together effectively to fight computer crime, according to industry lobby group Eurim. In a paper published this week, Eurim, which brings together information technology (IT) directors, lawyers, MPs and civil servants, said police resources alone are inadequate to deal with the rising tide of computer-related crime. Only 1,000 officers in Great Britain have been trained to handle basic computer evidence and less than 250 are qualified to present computer evidence in court, Eurim said. Eurim has called on the government to give responsibility for IT security training in the police and the private sector to Skills for Justice, a body set up to co-ordinate training in prisons, the Crown Prosecution Service and the police. E-Skills UK, the public/private sector partnership for IT training, should take responsibility for creating a framework of qualifications for police and security professionals, Eurim said.
