UK House of Lords attacks government response to cybercrime report

Disappointing news this week about the UK government’s poor response to the House of Lords Science and Technology Committee report on Internet security (which originally came out in August).

The Lords committee has criticised the government in no uncertain terms - the Earl of Erroll, a member of the committee, said, “Unfortunately, the government dismissed every recommendation out of hand, and their approach seems to solely consist of putting their head in the sand."

The report was also criticised by Richard Clayton in a pretty strongly-worded post on his blog. Clayton was involved in assisting the Lords committee.

Ho hum, back to the coal face.
