Abstract

Throughout Section II of the book, we presented a variety of security mechanisms, technologies, tools, and best practices being used in order to harden up and secure computer networks and the information communication infrastructure. In this chapter and the next, we are shifting from discussing moral and ethical education in order to form an ethical framework in decision making and from implementation of security technologies, tools, and best practices to focus on the legal and law enforcement approaches. We believe, despite the fact that the technology has outpaced the legal system and the technology criminals use is sometimes years ahead of that of law enforcement, the legal system can play a very positive and effective role in the security of networks and the communication infrastructure.
