The scope of this call is the Computer Misuse Act 1990, including offences and the powers available to law enforcement agencies to investigate those offences.
The consultation is aimed at UK organisations including:
- law enforcement agencies
- the cybersecurity industry
- private sector
Since the Act was passed 30 years ago, our reliance on the digital world has increased enormously and we are now critically dependent on the internet. The call’s aim is to identify whether there is activity causing harm in the area covered by the Act that is not adequately addressed by the current offences.
This consultation closes at 11:45pm on 8 June 2021.
