Cybercrime trends and security issues

Quite obvious: "US prosecutor: Cybercrime will follow the cloud" (ZDnet.co.uk, 13 july 2009)

More surprising: "Cisco reports rise in text-message scams" (ZDnet.co.uk, 15 July 2009)

And quite welcome: France now has its Agence nationale de la sécurité des systèmes d'information, or National Agency for security of information systems, with a budget of 90 millions euros and 120 people working and potentially 250 by 2012. Its role is to detect and prevent cyberattacks on information systems (=the net)

"La cybersécurité hissée au rang de priorité nationale" (JDN, 09 July 2009)
