SECURITY THREATS: U.K. National Security Advisor Peter Ricketts said that a “dedicated cyber unit is to guard the London Olympics against attack by online fraudsters, extortionists and spies.” Ricketts said there were 12 million “cyber security incidents” at the ’08 Beijing Olympics. He said that the U.K. government “is braced for even more next year.” In London, Roland Watson notes with “millions of pounds expected to change hands online in the coming months for tickets, hotel rooms and flights, the Government has already put months of work into tightening the security of IT networks.” One “particular concern is the threat from online protection rackets to hotel and ticket booking companies, where criminals take over a site and threaten to bring it down with the loss of huge sums of money unless a ransom is paid” (LONDON TIMES, 11/5).
