We acknowledge that, following the Government's disappointing response to our Report, they have reflected further and, with regard to some of the issues we raised, there has been some progress towards meeting our concerns. What progress there is, however, appears to be slow. Given this, we particularly welcome Mr Coaker's offer to keep the Committee informed, every two months, of what is happening (Q 50). We accept this offer and look forward to the Minister's first report in July. We anticipate that we shall be returning to this topic on a regular basis.
Their new report contains specific comments on consumer protection against e-crime; software vendor liability; personal data protection and breach notification; fraud and e-crime reporting and classification; funding for a central police e-crime unit; and international co-operation. It is short and to the point, and well worth a read.
