Stop-eCrime aims to reduce electronic crime by increasing transparency
of information and communications technologies.
Born out of 2010 meetings organized by the Anti-Phishing Working Group
and the IEEE Standards Association,
Stop-eCrime has already been
working on ecrime event data exchange standards and protocols, as well
as operational protocols for dealing with computers compromised by ecrime.
Now Stop-eCrime wants you to help tie these technical and operational
levels together into an ecrime detection and response system
coordinated among the public, business, academia, and government.
There’s plenty of work to be done on technical standards and
operational protocols (such as glossaries, metrics, and monetary
effects), plus Stop-eCrime needs educational materials and marketing
to explain incentives for everyone to participate in reducing ecrime.
