Discuss the legal and enforcement efforts that have been implemented to control cybercrime. ANSWER: The growth of cybercrime and its cost to the economy has created the need for new laws and enforcement processes specifically aimed at controlling its new and emerging formulations. Congress has treated computer-related crime as a distinct federal offense since passage of the Counterfeit Access Device and Computer Fraud and Abuse Law in 1984. Because cybercrime is new, existing laws sometimes are inadequate to address the problem. Therefore, new legislation has been drafted to protect the public from this new breed of cybercriminal. Specialized enforcement agencies have been created to crack down on cybercriminals.

95. Cyberterrorism has been called “an effort by covert forces to disrupt the intersection where the virtual electronic reality of computers meets the physical world.” Explain what this means and whether we should be concerned about cyberterrorism. ANSWER: Cyberterrorism can be viewed as an effort by covert forces to disrupt the intersection where the virtual electronic reality of computers meets the physical world. Some experts question the existence of cyberterrorism, going so far as to claim that not a single case of cyberterrorism has yet been recorded, that cybervandals and hackers are regularly mistaken for terrorists, and cyberdefenses are more robust than is commonly supposed. Cybercrime is worrisome because of the ability for it to reach victims in any geographic location and because of the ability to create a large amount of harm in a short time.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
