Policing borders after Brexit - Combatting online identity theft

Date: 
Friday, June 22, 2018

ABSTRACT

As Britain prepares to leave the EU, the question of what UK’s borders should look like is high on the political, economic and security agenda. The policing of UK borders post-Brexit is further complicated by security concerns of online identity verification of people passing through our ports, underpinned by the rise of increasingly sophisticated attacks by cybercriminals to steal identities. Such security concerns present risks not only to the effective management of immigration, but provides new opportunities for human traffickers and the movement of terrorist cells.
