4 BUT since we are dealing with human beings-LETS NOT FORGET… The Seven Deadly sins of Anger, Greed, Envy, Sloth, Pride, Gluttony and Lust all exist in the ‘online’ world and have been accelerated and magnified……basically the GLOBALIZATION OF CRIME over the Internet has occurred.
5 Major Types of Cyber criminal activity in Africa Cyber Fraud, particularly targeting consumer banking, hijacked business funds transfers and ‘carding’ software installed at cyber cafes or on ISP servers which drives internet credit card fraud in Africa.Fee for service scams, internet auction scams, fake ticket sites, fake banking and fake online retailer sites, many crimes that would be difficult to perpetrate face to face on a massive scale…the list is endless with many African victims!

11 Bismillah, In sha'a Allah I will keep these things going with beneficial points for countering counter terrorism efforts.There are some things that obviously will not be said,because only a few people need to know them and it is harmfulfor CT officials to have a heads up on what is going on. However,there are some things which they already know,or which they cannot do anything about, or which the Muslims havesignificantly greater capabilities to counteractanything CT officials can come up with. As things stand, we are currently dominating nearly every front in this war,but we are neglecting the true potential of this movement by allowing it tocontinue with almost no direction whatsoever. Al-Qa'ida does what they canto direct things, but it is not so easy when you are fighting a physical war atthe same time. Also, we are much more aware of our own situation than they are, simply due to the fact that we are here and they are fighting jihad already.
12 FBI Counterterrorism Internet Unit Coordinates significant FBI, INTERPOL investigations of Internet forums, websites, used to launder funds supporting terrorist activities.central point of contact representing the FBI with International Internet Service Providers and International Law Enforcement Partners.Helps give strategic direction and overview in identifying, penetrating and dismantling terrorists use of the Internet.Addresses the need recognized world wide by Law Enforcement and Public Security agencies of the mounting challenges involved in coordinating large-scale jihadist internet forum investigations.The jihadist web space is too large to target on an ad hoc basis and requires considerable levels of coordination and deconfliction, both domestically and internationally.ISP’s globally are the business record holders, the log file holders and technical subject matter experts often in the best position to assist law enforcement efforts.Contact your Countries National Police Agency, Regional FBI Legal Attache office or INTERPOL with questions or concerns.
13 Rwanda-Working closely with Ugandan officials. Recent Joint law enforcement investigations in Africa with a significant cyber componentRwanda-Working closely with Ugandan officials.Kenyan- ATPU working closelywith Ugandan officials.Algeria- Working closely with Moroccan and French officials.Egypt- Working closely with US and United Kingdom officials.South Africa-Working closely with US and United Kingdom officials…..All these cases require active ISP assistance to locate the subjects and bring them to justice….***and this is just this week!!***
14 None of these types of Investigations can be brought to a successful conclusion without the ISP’s assistance!The availability of IP address logs, with accurate time and date stamps is of critical importance to investigators.Having a contact name, physical address and telephone number at an ISP (preferably a mobile number or 24 hour contact number) is invaluable in emergency situations !
15 Single Most Helpful ISP Step Join the established group of 8 (G8)- 24 hour/7 day a week network contact list via your national police agency or Justice ministry!!!over 50 countries presently, used to request of ISP’s technical assistance, to request preservation of data and to provide a recipient point of contact for legal process.National Police forces or Justice Ministries in Mauritius, Morocco, Nigeria, South Africa and Tunisia are currently members. They are the liaisons for global law enforcement requests-so the ISP’s need to know them ‘locally’.
16 To maximize participation, an ISP needs the following- 1-Either English or French speaking POC.2-Contact point available 24 hours day-7 days per week.3-Technically Knowledgeable person working at the ISP physical plant.4-A person knowledgeable about domestic laws and policies.If the ISP DOES NOT HAVE all of these, that is NOT a problem-WE WILL HELP!!
