Parliamentary panel holding inquiry into cybercrime

The Parliamentary Joint Committee on the Australian Crime Commission is undertaking an inquiry into recent trends in cybercrime.

The inquiry will pay special attention to child pornography and associated paedophile activity, banking, including credit card fraud and money laundering and threats to national critical infrastructure.

The committee intends to examine recent trends and any potential limitations in the ACC's ability to perform its duties effectively and examine how well the existing legislative framework is suited to fight cybercrime and related offences.

Written submissions can be sent to: The Secretary, Parliamentary Joint Committee on the Australian Crime Commission, Suite S1 107, Parliament House, Canberra ACT 2600. The closing date for submissions is May 9.

Submissions can also be emailed as attachments to acc.committee@aph.gov.au.

After the submissions are considered, the committee will hold public hearings. Individuals and organisations may be invited to give evidence.
