Washington, DC (PRWEB) November 27, 2009
Former national cyber czar Andy Purdy launched Cybercrime.TV today, an online development site for producers, directors, writers, experts, and others joining him in launching a television network that focuses on cyber criminals and those who enable them.
"Cybercrime.TV is an online network for television people and computer people to work together," said Purdy.
The website provides tools to develop new projects and showcase them for production financing through Purdy and his associates. Membership is free, and members can upload videos and proposals, create groups, create forums, publish papers and articles, announce events, and publicize their programs.
Cybercrime.TV, as a television network, will focus on all aspects of cybercrime in the form of news and talk shows, specials, movies, and original series.
Topics of greatest interest to Purdy include cybersecurity, cyber terrorism, cyberstalking, encryption, financial crime, financial espionage, hackers, identity theft, information assurance, information warfare, Internet fraud, Internet privacy, Internet safety, malware, money laundering, network security, online predators, phishing, pirated software, social engineering, spamming, spoofing, spyware, and viruses.
Purdy is also interested in new exciting technologies that address cyber risk.
A frequent speaker at international conferences on cybersecurity, Purdy often points out that there is no adequate framework for collaboration between governments and the private sector against cybercrime.
He is working in an alliance with the Internet Law Group to build partnerships between private companies and government to collect and share data about malicious cyber actors, and use civil process to shut them down and seize their assets.
Last year, he created with Dr. Arun Sood of George Mason University the International Cyber Center (ICC) to promote a strategic approach to global cyber issues. The center hosts an international cyber R&D conference series to help delegates better assess and mitigate the cyber risk to the global information infrastructure and address the long-term hard problems of cyberspace.
Purdy's vision is to now engage the public with awareness-raising television programming brought about through online collaboration. Today's launch of Cybercrime.TV is the first step in that direction.
