The 35-member cyber team has had significant success but has asked multinational corporations to contribute with their sophisticated cybersecurity, as “their intelligence systems are better than ours,” Williams said.
Williams also warned businesses and individuals to not be complacent about cyber crime and take it seriously, the Guardian reported.
What worries her, she said, is that some still consider cyber crime as being “a little bit like maths.”
“If you go to a dinner party, someone might say that they don’t really get maths and everyone laughs and titters,” she said. “Not being able to understand it is the equivalent of not being able to read. It is unacceptable now and on that basis I have been saying to detectives that if they don’t understand what is happening with cyber crime, then they shouldn’t be a detective. I really mean that.”
