Cybercriminals beware: CYBERPOL is coming…

Who are these folks? Maybe the color of (most of) the ties should give you a clue…

INTERPOL - Global Center for InnovationAnd I was trying to blend in…

…For most of you they’ll never have anything to do with you, and you’ll have nothing to do with them. You hope.

But for those who make up the Internet minority who steal money from online banks, clog up e-mail with spam, hack websites, produce credit cards with stolen numbers, etc. – maybe they should take note of this modest crowd. Because these here suits and ties have a particular, burning… obsessive professional interest in that same Internet minority.

These ladies and gents were the participants of the first INTERPOL Eurasian get-together – a forum dedicated wholly to the fight against cybercrime. These are the folks who are to determine precisely how the European and Asian divisions of INTERPOL will be tracking down, at first – cybercrooks, and then shortly after – the cyber-small-fry (tomorrow’s cybercrooks).

So to both the current and prospective cybercrims – it’s time to stop and have a think about your futures. And make some changes!

You’ve only two ways forward. The first – quit and repent now. The second takes a little longer: first arrest, then plank bed, then court, then a long business trip… to get to grips with trendy gadgets.

The new INTERPOL office in Singapore is still under construction. Once opened next year, it will be from here where CYBERPOL will be hunting, catching and imprisoning the cyber-outlaws – wherever they may reside.

‘Singapore is fine city’, our hosts told us. Don’t worry, we replied, we’re fully aware already!

Singapore – it’s just so pleasant here. A really beautiful city (especially from the roof of the Marina Bay Sands hotel). And a bonus for me is that breakfast tends to be Chinese (yum!), as does lunch and dinner :).

There are only two drawbacks: First, it’s obscenely hot & humid (the equator’s not far). Second, sometimes the wind carries not the nicest of smells from the nearby oil refinery to the city.

Ah – there is one other thing: Everything here is so darn expensive. And I thought Moscow was bad. No – here it’s worse!

A few more pix are here.

That’s all people. Till next time – from Texas!…

Hi Eugene, wasn’t it a good move to have you involved from the first planning stage in Singapore? Now they only need to get the right and experienced experts involved. Happy to help out here.

A rise in the sea level of just one meter, and it’s curtains for the Maldivian paradise.

Never thought that one day I’d be in the Maldives. Why? Well, my travels normally take me to places where I really need to get to for business. The Maldives? No meetings, speeches or conferences, and no business tends to be transacted there… Of course there are times when I go to this or that […]

In sports news… A 125:50 victory for our man!

Amid all the neutron-proton-electron collision topics of late on these here cyber-pages – a bit of a breather. Time for some sports news… Some of you – especially those who follow our blogs – will know how we’re fairly well into the sponsorship thing: supporting sporting teams (and individuals – see later) around the globe, sometimes […]

The biggest device in the world – part two. 

Bonjour mes amis! All righty. You’ve had the soup for starters; now let’s move on to the main course…, rather, into the main course – i.e., inside the proverbial pie served up as main course, and check out the filling – the proverbial steak and kidney, as it were… (but I digest). Put simpler – […]
