The Strategic Alliance Cyber Crime Working Group consists of five law enforcement organizations:
- Australian Federal Police
- New Zealand Police
- Royal Canadian Mounted Police, and
- Serious Organised Crime Agency (U.K.)
that work together to fight cybercrime in a synergistic way by sharing intelligence, swapping tools and best practices, and strengthening and even synchronizing their respective laws. The group is an outgrowth of the larger Strategic Alliance Group — a formal partnership between these nations dedicated to tackling larger global crime issues, particularly organized crime.
Among the group’s activities:
- Collectively developed a comprehensive overview of the transnational cyber threat — including current and emerging trends, vulnerabilities, and strategic initiatives for the working group to pursue (Note: the report is available only to law enforcement);
- Set up a special area on Law Enforcement Online, the FBI’s secure Internet portal, to share information and intelligence;
- Launched a series of information bulletins on emerging threats and trends (for example, a bulletin describing how peer-to-peer (P2P) file-sharing programs can inadvertently leak vast amounts of sensitive national security, financial, medical, and other information);
- Began exploring an exchange of cyber experts to serve on joint international task forces and to learn each other’s investigative techniques firsthand; and
- Shared training curriculums and provided targeted training to international cyber professionals.
