In a talk titled “To Boldly Go!” Peter Zinn, Senior Cybercrime Advisor for the Dutch National High Tech Crime Unit (NHTCU) spoke on his agency’s battles against online crime. Zinn detailed how the NHTCU was able to apprehend the operator of the Bredolab botnet after his girlfriend posted to her Facebook on his laptop and how social media tools like Google Maps and Flickr to hunt down cybercriminals responsible for child pornography and other “victimless” crimes. Looking to grow exponentially in the near future, Zinn claims the NHTCU will double in size this year – from 30 to 60 people.
