Quick Bytes: Five steps to cybersecurity

By Peter Piazza

In a new paper, the Business Software Alliance calls on lawmakers to take five steps to deter cybercrime: Ratify the Council of Europe’s Convention on Cybercrime; improve cross-jurisdictional cooperation to make investigating cyberattacks in other countries easier; ensure that law enforcement has the proper tools and training to fight online lawlessness; create a presidential commission on organized cybercrime and identity theft that will make recommendations for raising awareness of, and fighting, these problems; and increase enforcement by setting up an inter-agency organized task force to fight phishing, spam, spyware, and other online threats.@ Securing Cyberspace in the 21st Century is available via SM Online.
