This clip is long but if you are interested in hearing about how the Online Harms bill could potentially assist to prevent financial scams, it is worth a watch.
The report I refer to ‘Caught in the Web’ is from the Money and Mental Health Institute that was set up by Martin Lewis. They are investigating internet safety over a series of reports: https://www.moneyandmentalhealth.org/online-scams/
The witnesses you hear from on the video are:
Commander Clinton Blackburn, National Coordinator for Economic Crime, City of London Police
Mark Steward, Executive Director of Enforcement and Market Oversight, Financial Conduct Authority
Graeme Biggar, Director General, National Economic Crime Centre.
Nicola Parish, Executive Director of Frontline Regulation, The Pensions Regulator
I am continuing to look at various aspects of the Online Harms Bill to see how we can create modern legislation that deals with the online technology world we are now all living in.
