- The United States and the United Kingdom have committed to continuing cooperative efforts on cybersecurity. Meeting last week during President Obama’s state visit to the U.K, the President and British Prime Minister David Cameron reaffirmed “close bilateral cooperation” between the countries, and both have committed their country to participating in the London International Cyber Conference which will be held in November 2011. During the President’s visit, it was also announced that the U.K. will join the Budapest Convention on Cybercrime, which sets standards for national laws dealing with online fraud and enables cooperation between nations on combating cybercriminals. The United States and 30 other countries are already signatories to the Convention, and have committed to “more effectively deploy resources in building technological capacity in the developing world.” For more information on U.S./U.K. cooperation on cybersecurity, click here.
