Computer Law UK
Due to it not being a vote winning subject, the UK actually ended up with two very good pieces of legislation.
Computer Misuese Act 1990 and Data Protection Act 1998.
The are clear, coherent, and without to many contradictions of other laws (e.g. the Planning Acts where not catered for with DPA98 and contradict each other over public registers)
The only problem is enforcement.
The ICO thinks it should only process complaints and self referals, and do no investigations, hence the complete lack of action over the Universal Job Match website, which provides crooks with a free identity theft facilitation service, paid for by the UK tax payers.
Most police officers have never heard of CMA90, and if you ask the question of a senior "cyber crime" police officer what can a company do if a former employee deletes all your customer records, you get a response of;
long pause, uh.........criminal damge
rather than violations Sections 1, 2 & 3 CMA90, on conviction upto 6 months and a £5k fine.
If the new unit can claw back the ground lost with the disalution of the old NHTCU, then I will be very happy, I will be even happier if they get an appropriate number of resources, rather than a token number of bodies, just so the minister can say he's doing something.
