AKJ Associates and the National Hi-Tech Crime Unit are pleased to present the third annual e-Crime Congress, which will take place on the 5th and 6th April 2005 at the Victoria Park Plaza Hotel, London.

The Congress is supported by the National Hi-Tech Crime Unit (NHTCU) and the Home Office for the third year and this year we are delighted to welcome the National Infrastructure Security Co-ordination Centre (NISCC) as an endorsing partner. The Congress will once again work towards a common goal: a safer digital world, a world in which the social and business benefits of the internet will be realised and maximised and a model that will dissuade organised crime from populating this frontier. In 2002 the e-Crime Congress focused on the identification of these threats and in 2004 we described the framework of response needed to minimise the dangers. In 2005 we identify practical models and solutions to effectively combat hi-tech crime through efficient partnerships.

The Congress attracts a truly international audience. Over 400 delegates from 22 countries attended the 2004 event: Australia, Belarus, Belgium, Canada, Croatia, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Hungary, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Netherlands, Poland, Romania, Russia, Spain, Sweden, UK, Ukraine and USA. The 2005 event is expected to be full to capacity with over 500 delegates attending.

The theme of the 2005 Congress is securing business reputation – sustaining consumer confidence. The theme is explored through five structured sessions:

* Understanding the challenge
* Emerging threats to business reputation &consumer confidence
* Managing risk &maximising business advantage
* Regulation, compliance &corporate governance
* Disruption &disentanglement

Key issues that continue to challenge business effectiveness will be addressed and will include: emerging and existing threats to business confidence and reputation; evaluating electronic risk; compliance and corporate governance imperatives and a financial analysis of the corporate value of first rate e-security strategy. Identity theft, phishing, fraud and forensics will also feature significantly as the Congress will provide practical examples of law enforcement operational success. The goal of this year’s Congress is to furnish all delegates with new models, solutions and strategies in order to create a safer and more profitable business environment and ultimately a safer society.

Uniquely, the Congress provides an opportunity for delegates representing government, law enforcement and business to develop effective partnerships. The Congress affords delegates the chance to work with senior representatives from national and international government as well as law enforcement agencies and corporations. Their mission: to create policies and strategies that will effectively combat the threat of hi-tech crime.

Delegates play a crucial role by participating in focused workshops debating and developing recommendations. These are discussed in plenary sessions. The aim of these workshops is to provide an interactive arena for experts from business, government and law enforcement to meet, identify and explore the necessary steps needed to ensure that organisational policies and procedures are available and implemented.
