Laws and regulations created by Congress are designed to protect society from itself. Law abiding citizens generally follow the law, but not everyone believes in this approach. There are laws meant to punish hackers for crimes against companies and people. Are these laws effective, and does the punishment fit the crime?
Write a 4–6-page paper outlining one law that is effective and working. Use current statistics as justification for effectiveness. Find another law that is not working effectively. Again, use statistics or other research to show lack of effectiveness. Make a recommendation on a law that could bridge a gap in covering a new hacking method or ID theft. Include relevant information such as punishments for crime types. Address whether punishments are harsh enough to deter hacking. Research can be done using your favorite search engine. Use the Library as needed for research. Cite your resources and use APA formatting throughout.
