The Honourable Mark Ryan MP Minister for Police and Minister for Corrective Services joined national and international representatives from law enforcement, intelligence agencies, academia and the private sector today for the Intelligence, Cyber and Technology Enabled Crime Conference.
The conference provided an opportunity for delegates to promote discussion around future trends, opportunities and mitigation strategies.
Minister Ryan said today’s conference offered an excellent opportunity to hear from and share ideas with others in the field and were vital for the prevention and disruption of cyber and technology enabled crimes.
“This conference offers an opportunity to bring together the best expertise in cyber and technology enabled crime,” Minister Ryan said.
“Together, the Queensland Police Service and the Queensland Government will continue to deliver excellence in the prevention, deterrence, disruption and prosecution of these crime types.”
Attendees heard from world leading practitioners and academics to understand intelligence strategies to combat intelligence, cyber and technology enabled crime.
Acting Deputy Commissioner Maurice Carless said as the Queensland community became more connected and interconnected, it was important to ensure law enforcement was keeping pace with these threats and keeping community members safe from them.
“As demonstrated by the diverse range of attendees here today, it is true to say that intelligence, cyber and technology enabled crimes know no geographical boundaries,” Acting Deputy Commissioner Carless said.
“It is encouraging to see that there is a keen awareness of the need to partner, collaborate and share our knowledge in order to prevent, deter and disrupt cyber and technology enabled crime types.”
