Opening of the Northern Cloud Crime Centre

Investigating Criminal Activity in the Cloud

The Northern Cloud Crime Centre joins an interdisciplinary group of researchers together to work towards investigating criminal act in the cloud. “The Cloud” introduces some entirely new complications to the identification, and policing, of crime on the internet, especially with regard to investigating and enforcing regulation. It is primarily a new force multiplier which dramatically extends the reach of criminals globally and technologically; far beyond that which the internet currently facilitates. For the uninitiated, cloud technologies essentially share computing processing facilities on demand and while the potential of ‘cloud’ is still evolving for the purposes of this discussion, ‘The Cloud’ is the extra cyberspace that cloud technologies create; a space that creates much good and also much evil.
