UK government to ban criminals, cyber bullies from Internet
London, Nov 26 (ANI): Criminals who commit offences online and cyber bullies will be banned from the internet as part of British government's new cyber security strategy.
The government's new cyber security strategy calls for police and courts to make more use of existing "cyber sanctions" to restrict access to the social networks and instant messaging services in cases of hacking, fraud and online bullying.
Sex offenders and those convicted of harrassment or anti-social behaviour also face more Internet restrictions under the new strategy, the Telegraph reports.
Similar orders have been imposed on those charged with involvement in a series of cyber attacks by the Anonymous and LulzSec groups earlier this year, while they await trial.
Cyber sanctions were also used following the riots this summer. Two teenagers in Dundee were banned from the web for inciting riots via Facebook.
According to the paper, officials are now looking into whether "cyber tag" technology could be used to monitor offenders and report to authorities if break their bail or sentence conditions by using the Internet.
Police forces across the country would also follow the example of the Met's Police Central e-Crime Unit by recruiting "cyber specials", internet experts will be encouraged to volunteer as special constables to help investigate online crime, the report said. (ANI)
