The Cyber Security Strategy identifies criminal use of cyber space as one of the three principal threats to cyber security alongside state and terrorist use. This paper sets out the Home Office's approach to tackling cyber crime, showing how the authors will tackle such crimes directly through the provision of a law enforcement response, and indirectly through cross-Government working and through the development of relationships with industry, charities and other groups, and internationally. This strategy does not seek to duplicate work already being undertaken to tackle issues such as those relating to regulation of the internet, or to content on the internet. The Home Office is working with a number of partners to consider how to tackle content that is upsetting or offensive.
