A commercial crime detective with WA Police has said that it’s very important to inform the police about any security breach before it costs intellectual property, sensitive data or even cold hard cash of an organization. Detective Inspector Tim Thomas thinks, industries must need to be open about any type of security breach to keep themselves safer in the longer term as there is a noteworthy inconsistency between the quantity of cyber-based offenses being talked about in the society compared with the figure being informed to the police. Cyber crimes are a technique of felonious rather than a form of offence. Thomas also believes that preys are unwilling to account cybercrime to the police since they are worried, it will spoil and harm their trade name. Victims need to cooperate with the police to locate the hackers and spammers and help in changing this culture. In spite of trying very hard to keep their data and systems secure, they are usually faced with an impossible challenge to uphold a continually advanced level of security, Thomas said. An important problem has been the way offenses are being recorded and classified – a good number of cybercrimes are customary offences which are being done in an innovative mode, and are consequently reported as threats or fraud. A federal government initiative has addressed the issue, which is called the Australian Cybercrime Online Reporting Network; this is a one stop shop for cybercrime reporting in Australia. It is also very important to have clear permissions while assigning contractors and staff with suitable access privileges and rights otherwise it can be very complicated to prove criminality.
