Crisis Awareness and Preparedness
Current Crisis Overseas Crisis Awareness Keeping Informed About A Crisis: When a crisis occurs abroad involving large numbers of U.S. citizens, such as a natural disaster, transportation accident, civil or political unrest or a terrorist incident, the Department of State and the U.S. Embassy abroad utilize a variety of means of communicating with the American public, including the Internet. Monitoring the Consular Updates on the Internet: Monitor the Department of State, Bureau of Consular Affairs home page and the home page for the U.S. Embassy in the foreign country for up-to-date information about the crisis. Communicating With Families of U.S. Citizens Involved in a Crisis: Families in the United States whose U.S. citizen relatives abroad are directly affected by the crisis can also communicate with the Department of State through our Office of American Citizens Services and Crisis Management at (202) 647-5225. If a 24-hour task force or working group is established in the Department of State Operations Center to manage the crisis, you will be directed to the Task Force at (202) 647-0900. Letting Your Family Know You Are Okay: If a crisis occurs in a country you are visiting, contact your family in the United States to reassure them regarding your safety.

U.S. European Command General Completes Successful Visit to Estonia
General Carlton Fulford, Deputy Commander-in-Chief of the United States European Command, completed a successful visit to Estonia today. General Fulford, who visited Estonia at the invitation of Rear Admiral Tarmo Kõuts, Commander of the Estonian Defense Forces, toured the Baltic Airspace Surveillance Network's Estonian National Node, visited the Paldiski Peace Operations Center, and met with Trivimi Velliste, Vice-Chairman of the Riigikogu Defense Committee. On the afternoon of October 17, General Fulford paid a visit to President Arnold Rüütel. Addressing Estonia's progress in developing its defense forces, General Fulford assured President Rüütel that Estonia is on the right track for NATO membership, underlining President Bush's statement in his June 15 speech in Warsaw that "the United States will be prepared to make concrete, historic decisions with its allies to advance NATO enlargement." NATO enlargement must be approved by all member states, and in the United States two-thirds of the Senate must ratify any decisions on adding new members to this organization.

International Aspects of Computer Crime
  • Council of Europe
    Recommendation 95(13)
    OECD Guidelines for Cryptography Policy

  • With the explosive growth of the Internet worldwide, computer crimes increasingly are prone to have international dimensions. Some of the challenges faced by law enforcement on the international front include: harmonization of countries' criminal laws; locating and identifying perpetrators across borders; and securing electronic evidence of their crimes so that they may be brought to justice. Complex jurisdictional issues arise at each step. The Department of Justice is working with foreign governments through many channels to address global threats related to computer crime.
    A. Council of Europe Cybercrime Convention On November 23, 2001, in Budapest, Hungary, the United States and 29 other countries signed the Council of Europe Cybercrime Convention, the first multilateral instrument drafted to address the problems posed by the spread of criminal activity on computer networks. The Cybercrime Convention will require parties to establish laws against cybercrime, to ensure that their law enforcement officials have the necessary procedural authorities to investigate and prosecute cybercrime offenses effectively, and to provide international cooperation to other parties in the fight against computer-related crime.

    THE ELECTRONIC COMMERCE DIRECTIVE (00/31/EC) Summary Background to Implementation Government Response to Consultation The Electronic Commerce (EC Directive) Regulations ... Government Contact Summary The E-Commerce Directive was adopted on 8 June 2000 and published in the Official Journal of the European Communities on 17 July 2000. The objective was to ensure that information society services benefit from the internal-market principles of free movement of services and freedom of establishment, in particular through the principle that their provision cross-border throughout the European Community cannot be restricted. The Directive includes: requirements regarding the role of national authorities; transparency requirements for web advertising; principles relating to contracting online; limitations to the liability of Internet intermediaries; and requirements regarding disclosure of any codes of conduct, such as for online-dispute settlement, by which the service provider is bound. The Directive covers information society services (i.e. services normally provided for remuneration, at a distance, by means of electronic equipment for the processing and storage of data and at the individual request of a recipient of a service), both business to business and business to consumer, including services provided free of charge to the recipient (e.g. funded by advertising or sponsorship revenue) and services allowing for online electronic transactions, such as interactive online shopping. Examples of sectors and activities covered include online newspapers, online databases, online financial services, online professional services (such as lawyers, doctors, accountants and estate agents), online entertainment services (such as video on demand), online direct marketing and advertising and services providing access to the Internet.

    UK GOVERNMENT CONSULATION ON ICANN AND THE MANAGEMENT OF THE INTERNET DOMAIN NAME SYSTEM Introduction II Background II Consultation II Consultation Questions II Links II Government Contact II Government Response 1. The domain name system (DNS) is a key piece of the internet’s infrastructure. Without the DNS, internet users would have to remember long and complicated numbers (called IP numbers) when they sent an e-mail or visited a web-site. The DNS maps these numbers onto words or characters – called domain names - making internet addresses easier to remember. 2. Before 1998, the DNS was managed, either directly or through contracts, by the US Government. However in 1998 the US Department of Commerce internationalised and privatised the management of the DNS and created ICANN – the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. ICANN is the US based not for profit organisation that co-ordinates key DNS functions at the global level.
    ICANN Reform
    3. In February 2002 ICANN’s President announced that ICANN in its present form was not working and called for full reform of ICANN covering its mission, funding and relationship with Governments. ICANN will make a decision on its reform towards the end of June 2002. The UK Government has followed the progress of ICANN closely since it was created in 1998. We are a member of the ICANN Government Advisory Committee (GAC) which provides advice on public policy matters. We, along with other Governments and stakeholders, are working closely with ICANN on its reform process.

    October 2002 Regional Indicators: European Union (EU) The European Union, with increasingly integrated economies and energy sectors, is the world's second-largest energy consumer (behind the United States). EU members include: Austria Belgium Denmark Finland ... Sweden , and the United Kingdom Note: Information contained in this report is the best available as of October 2002 and is subject to change. BACKGROUND
    The European Union (EU) was founded as the European Economic Community (EEC) by the Treaty of Rome in 1957 to promote economic and political integration in Europe. The founding of the EEC followed the creation of the European Coal and Steel Community, established after World War II as a means of promoting integration among former enemies. The EEC has expanded from its original six members (Belgium, France, the Federal Republic of Germany, Italy, Luxembourg, and the Netherlands) to include the United Kingdom, Ireland, and Denmark in 1973; Greece in 1981; Spain and Portugal in 1986; and Austria, Finland, and Sweden (former members of the European Free Trade Association) in 1995. In 2001, the Treaty of Nice was signed by member governments. This treaty changed the way the institutions of the EU operate in order to make possible the admission of new member states in the future. At its next scheduled meeting in December 2002, the EU Council of Ministers is expected to nominate Poland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Slovenia, Malta, and Cyprus for entry in to the EU in 2004. Many other countries also aspire to EU membership, including Romania and Bulgaria, which are expected to join in 2007.
