We lezen in het rapport van Time Lex onder meer dit :
The Netherlands can be considered as a Member State where comprehensive information can be found on a diversified series of actions and measures related to the combat against online malpractices such as spam, spyware or malicious software.
The national telecom regulator perceives the role of the Dutch government as strongly dedicated to the fight of online threats. It has real investigating and sanctioning powers and actually make use of these. It also set up various voluntary projects, such as a botnet project, defining guidelines for ISPs to help botnet infected customers with cleaning up their systems. Also, most ISPs offer their clients (web based) spam filters, use blacklists, etc.
In comparison to other Member States, the Netherlands are probably one of the forerunners in combating online malpractices. The government invests considerable financial resources and efforts are being made to co‐ordinate actions efficiently. It is a Member State where actions undertaken against spam are followed by results....
Voor België vinden we het volgende :
Belgium can be considered as a Member State where appropriate actions and measures have been undertaken related to the combat against online malpractices such as spam, spyware or malicious software. Various authorities have been made competent in order to make the fight against spam and spyware a success. There is awareness that these are important problems and campaigns to inform civilians have been worked out. Also, commitment can be demonstrated by a relatively quick implementation of European legislation. Unfortunately, the DPA has no real sanctioning power.
Also, a collaboration scheme between international authorities and private partners such as ISPs has been set up and Belgium participates actively in international action plans and think thanks.
The various competences however are not always clearly defined but this does not seem to cause a lot of problems. The biggest problem however is that no administrative decisions are being imposed due to a lack of sanctioning power of the competent authorities and that makes it very difficult to act fast and efficiently when faced with spam and spyware.
