Cybercrime is a growing global problem, but some nations are much more advanced in their approaches to combating it than others. The availability of technology, the sophistication of legislation, and the knowledge and apathy levels of a country's citizenry can all greatly affect a nation's ability to deter, detect, investigate, and prosecute cyber criminals. What, in your opinion, are strategies that you believe would increase your nation's ability to deal with cybercrime on an international, instead of just domestic, level? How should more technologically advanced nations deal with crime originating from less technologically advanced countries, and vice versa? Discuss thoroughly.

How should more technologically advanced nations deal with crime originating from less technologically advanced countries, and vice versa? Likely the easiest strategies that could be put into place in other countries (especially those less advanced) are simple education to common threats and protections to them such as phishing attempts, theft of personal information and modesty in social media posting. Companies could also sponsor or provide basic security software for free or at reduced costs to developing nations. Those countries from a law enforcement perspective would likely have a lot fewer tech resources for investigations as well as fewer trained cyber savvy investigators. Putting in place treaties or MOUs with those countries and sponsoring partnership joint training with more advanced nations may foster a working relationship as well. More advanced nations would obviously take away less (or not at all) technology and investigative techniques from lesser nations but as mentioned above joint working relationships and an emphasis that we are all stakeholders would be beneficial and may set the tone for working together when investigations happen. Enforcement will continue to be difficult across jurisdictional boundaries and joint task force styles of policing may not be possible. In any event, the strongest approach and benchmark should be information sharing and intelligence at least (as a preemptive measure). Here organizations such as Interpol can be effective but it is important to
