Barrister Robert Newcombe of Church Court Chambers together with Tom Fairfax MD of SRM Solutions, gave a lecture entitled “Cyber Security and Cyber fraud: Trojan botnets, web-injects and mules” to solicitors (20 November 2017) of the INN Group at the City offices of law firm DAC Beachcroft.

He is Managing Director of Security Risk Management- SRM Solutions.

SRM’s platforms for e-discovery and e-disclosure were of great interest to attendees.
Robert Newcombe gave a rapid-fire lecture on the law, types of offending and practical case management in the context of cyber crime prosecutions. These included examples of cases he has been instructed in, of cyber fraud, manufacture of malware and denials of service attacks, and a short discourse on the AML risks of Bitcoin and its similarities with Hawala banking. Instructed cases include the use of Trojan botnets to access compromised personal data in order to perpetrate frauds and the common law offence of conspiracy to defraud. RIPA notices under section 49 and the Computer Misuse Act offences were also covered, with a summary of sentencing policy in this area.
