Cyber Security Code Launched

07 06 2010

On 4 June 2010 the Government in association with the Internet Industry Association launched the Voluntary Industry Cyber Security Code for ISPs.

The voluntary code is aimed at having ISPs join in contributing to cyber security, whether assisting customers understand risks and looking out for them, or notifying police when they become aware of unlawful activity.

The benefits to ISPs are obvious from a marketing perspective, this is further boosted by eligibility to display the ‘iCode Compliant’ badge on their websites. Many ISPs would argue that they already provide customers with detailed information on keeping their computers safe, and already notify law enforcement when they become aware of unlawful activity.

The Code is expected to come into force on 1 December 2010.
