Number of Cyber-Crimes committed in 2005 and 2015

Lucy Dwyer made this Freedom of Information request to Australian Federal Police

Australian Federal Police did not have the information requested.

From: Lucy Dwyer

Delivered

Dear Australian Federal Police,

I wish to make an informal request regarding the number of "cyber-crimes" committed in the year 2005, and in the year 2015.

At the Australian Government website (https://www.ag.gov.au/CrimeAndCorruption..., there are two categories of cyber-crime stated:

1. "crimes directed at computers or other information communications technologies (ICTs) (such as hacking and denial of service attacks)"
2. "crimes where computers or ICTs are an integral part of an offence (such as online fraud, identity theft and the distribution of child exploitation material)."

I wish to obtain the number of cyber-crimes committed which fall under the 2nd category only, for the years 2005 and 2015 (two individual years).

Kind regards and many thanks in advance,

Lucy

Dear Ms Dwyer,

         
Your Freedom of Information Request

I refer to your application dated 23 February 2016 in which you seek
access to documents under the Freedom of Information Act 1982 (the Act).

 

Information considered irrelevant to the scope of your request

The AFP, in its management of FOI requests, excludes the following
information on the basis that is irrelevant to the scope of a request:

 

-      Names of AFP members, other than the Senior Executive.

-      Direct telephone numbers and mobile telephone numbers of AFP
members.

-      Duplicate documents, including duplicate emails.  The AFP will only
provide emails where they form a final email chain and the
authors/recipients are contained within the final email.  

-      Information that is publicly available, for example, newspaper
articles, online publications including information available on the AFP
Information Publication Scheme and the AFP disclosure log.

 

If you object to the AFP excluding any of the above information, please
advise this office within seven days of receipt of this letter.

 

Your request was received by this agency on 23 February 2016 and the 30
day statutory period for processing your request commenced from that date.

 

You will be notified of any charges in accordance with the Freedom of
Information (Fees and Charges) Regulations, should they apply, in relation
to your request as soon as practicable. 

 

Information Publication Scheme

Please be advised that in accordance with section 8(2) of the Act, an
agency is required to publish information on their website following the
notification of a decision in respect of a freedom of information
request. 

 

The requirement to publish information released under FOI reinforces the
objectives of the FOI Act to promote a pro-disclosure culture across
government and to increase recognition that information held by government
is a national resource.  Exceptions to the requirement to publish
information would apply to personal information and information concerning
the business affairs of a person if it was considered ‘unreasonable’ to do
so.  Details of the decision may be published in a Disclosure Log which
can be found at
[1]http://www.afp.gov.au/about-the-afp/info....

 

If, however, after noting the above, you wish to raise any concerns about
the publication of information concerning your request prior to the
notification of a decision, please advise this office in writing before 16
January 2016.  If you do not raise any concerns prior to the date of the
decision, the AFP will publish the information as notified to you in the
decision.

 

Yours sincerely

Good afternoon Ms Dwyer,

 

I refer to your Freedom of Information request dated 23 February 2016
relating to cyber-crimes committed in 2005 and 2015.

 

Unfortunately, the AFP’s system does not categorise cyber-crimes into the
two categories which you mentioned in your application. This would require
a member to go through each matter to determine which category it would
belong to.

 

It does, however, categorise matters into offences under the Criminal Code
Act 1995 (Criminal Code). Was there a particular section within the
Criminal Code that you were interested in?

 

In order to assist, note that Part 10.6 of the Criminal Code contains
offences relating to telecommunication services and Part 10.7 of the
Criminal Code contains computer offences.

 

Please feel free to give me a call on the number below if you have any
questions.

 

Kind regards,
