From coordinated meetings held by the Anti-Phishing Working Group and IEEE-SA members in 2010, came an effort focusing on how to deal with electronic crime at an industry- and government-impacting level. This new working group, chartered under the IEEE Standards Association Industry Connections Security Group (ICSG), is called "Stop-eCrime". Stop-eCrime deals with electronic crime and its threat to society and the economy that are dependent on information and communications technologies.
Our goal is to drive change by helping citizens, businesses and governments to understand what electronic crime is, and why they have a responsibility to help stop it. We strive to demonstrate how electronic crime can be better managed through establishment of standards, protocols and resources that will help industry and government effect a more unified response. Such a response system could be fashioned along the lines of a public health model, specifically its operational profile of routine event data exchange and analysis, and its coordinated program of response.
So far, the Stop-eCrime Working Group has focused on two fundamental objectives:
And we want your help! How? The Stop-eCrime Working Group has set out to create impactful results in a multi-phase approach, within a timeline that is measured in months rather than years. We have started working on the following deliverables and are seeking collaborators to help develop them:
Stop-eCrime is looking for people who are passionate about stopping electronic crime and who desire to lead or contribute in some of these efforts. We want you to help lead in the development of a unified response paradigm against electronic crime!
