An anonymous reader writes "Steve Santorelli gets computing experts and law enforcers to cooperate in a global fight against organized Internet crime. This article talks about the role of law enforcement in identifying and battling online threats as they change and evolve. Quoting: 'The common wisdom about hacking and cybercrime is, in Santorelli's view, severely out of date. He says cybercriminals aren’t lone wolves; they are financed and directed by international criminal syndicates. ... Organized crime also has vast resources derived from its traditional operations to finance the hiring of quality hackers around the world. There is even evidence that some syndicates are investing in research and development, looking to create proprietary, next-generation hacking tools, Santorelli says.'"
