It is everyone’s responsibility to promote a safe and reliable cyberspace environment in the context of an emerging information society. A minimum level of security for in- formation and communication technologies must be provided at an affordable cost. Se- curity must not become an exclusion factor for anyone who would like to conduct private or business activities over the Internet. In the context of information security some basic recommendations could be pro- posed: x Educate the end-user; x Increase public awareness to enhance security user’s behaviour; x Give to the end-user tools and means to be responsible; x Design an end-user centric security model within a given technical and legal framework; x Information technology and content providers should improve the security of their products and services. Products or services must integrate, in native, simple and flexible security measures and mechanisms. Products should be well-documented and comprehensible and security mechanisms should be readily understood and configured easily by untrained users. Security must be integrated at the beginning of information technologies’ infrastructure development life cycles. It is fundamental that the international community, including developing countries: x Understand cybercrime from a global perspective; x Define a national cybersecurity strategy; x Develop public awareness of cybercrime and cyber security challenges (economic and management issues, political issues, social issues, technical issues, legal and law enforcement issues);

8 x Promote a cyber security culture (information on stakes and risks, dissemination of simple recommendations, such as: use secure systems, reduce vulnerability by avoiding dangerous situations or behaviour, etc.); x Train and inform on information and communication technologies and on security issues, and relevant legal provisions; x Develop cyber security education; x Propose a unified cybersecurity framework which includes, in a complementary fashion, the human, regulatory, organizational, economic, technical and operational dimensions of cyber security; x Put in place organizational structures to support a national cybersecurity strategy; x Create regional alert points for the provision of technical information and assistance regarding security risks and cybercrime; x Create effective cybercrime laws that are enforceable at national and international levels (global and harmonized legal framework taking into account the right to privacy (Protection of public safety, with protection of privacy and civil liberties)); x Redefine law enforcement and legal framework in order to bring cybercrime perpetrators to justice; x Manage jurisdictional issues; x Fight cybercrime (deterrence, detection, investigation, prosecution of cybercriminal activities, crime reporting, crime analysis, practices and experiences on search and seizure of digital evidence, organizing capacities to combat cybercrime, information sharing, promotion of effective public and private sector cooperation); x

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
