The first ever end-to-end review of the internet with a view to identifying and curbing the use and abuse of the internet for financial crime and the support of terrorism. The internet is not a thing, it is not a place, it is not a person. The internet, of itself, does nothing. It performs no function. The internet does not form intent. It has no conscience. The internet cannot be policed, it cannot be legislated and even if it could, no enforcement is possible. However, the internet has "touch points" that have physical and legal presence in countries. Those touch points can be policed, they can be the subject of legislation and enforcement can be effective. And the internet is used by people and people can be policed, they can be the subject of legislation and enforcement can be effective. In some ways, the internet is like the pipes in a domestic plumbing system. The plumbing system allows the delivery of water to terminal points: taps, showers and toilets; the internet allows the delivery of instructions and information to terminal points - computers. Activity that appears to happen "on the internet" actually happens on those computers. Computers do nothing unless they are instructed to do something. Like a tap doesn't turn itself on, a computer does nothing without, initially at least, instructions from a human. For too long we have talked about regulating "the internet." The internet is the wrong target. To combat crime committed using the medium of the internet, we must regulate the people who use the internet to commit crime. We know from wider criminal behaviour that a significant amount of crime is committed for profit. Criminals who commit e.g. fraud over the internet cannot do so in isolation. The internet is not a thing but it is an eco-system. And around those criminals there are a host of seemingly honest businesses all willing to take a share of the criminals' profits in return for providing a range of services. Cleaning up the 'Net identifies them and shows how they can be recruited in the battle against crime, some of which is committed on-line. Written in part in conjunction with "The Ten Real Life Exploits That Da'esh / ISIS use to Hack The World" by the same author.

About the Author:

Nigel Morris-Cotterill Head, The Anti Money Laundering Network Nigel Morris-Cotterill was a solicitor in private practice in London before forming the first company that grew into The Anti Money Laundering Network with consulting, e-learning, face to face training, publications (World Money Laundering Report), high-level fora (The Financial Crime Forum) and customer profiling software (Risk Values). In the mid 1980s to the mid-1990s, Morris-Cotterill turned the necessity of understanding technology into a hobby and then into a sideline and wrote technology articles for major IT publications, the legal press and a host of other outlets until the tech industry reached a plateau of innovation, rendering tech a fashion item with forced evolution rather than technology-driven revolution. In short for someone with interest in cutting edge tech, tech got boring. But remaining abreast of it became increasingly important as computing technology, and its use and abuse, wormed its way into every aspect of our lives. He splits his time between Europe and South East Asia but works worldwide. He is the author of - How not to be a money launderer (1996, 2nd ed 1998, reprint 2010) - Sun Tzu and the Art of Litigation (2013) - How does that make you feel? Identifying suspicion in money laundering and terrorist financing (2014) - Ten things you need to know about dealing with death (2015) - The Ten Real Life Exploits that Da'esh / ISIS use to Hack the World (2015) .
