Cybercrime Prosecution is a Nightmare

Cripple computers worldwide with a virus, escape scot-free, access a website illegally, earn an arrest warrant in your name.

Before the proliferation of the Internet created a new playground for criminal activity, the life of a criminal-at-large was pretty straightforward. Do a crime, do the time...

The advent of Cybercrime has warranted a classification all unto itself. New laws specifically written for electronic criminal activity are needed before prosecution for electronic crimes can be meted out. I'm not a judge, but why existing laws for injury can't be applied to electronic criminal activity is beyond me.

Savvy criminals understand the judicial system and launch their illegal agendas from countries that lack electronic criminal laws.

This means that if your country of residence doesn't have any laws in place to prohibit electronic criminal activity you can effectively escape prosecution.

This is how criminal activity can affect thousands, even millions of others worldwide, and yet the perpetrator can just shrug it all off.

We all know that the creator of the Love Bug Virus did just that. He caused severe damage to personal, corporate and government data. His actions caused financial loss, and I'm sure any decent lawyer could argue for emotional distress, as well, for the victims! Talk about "Love hurts!"

The individual was identified, but was not immediately apprehended because the Philippine investigators scratched their heads in dismay over what law(s) to charge the individual with violating. In the end, the father of the Love Bug Virus was hassled and inconvenienced, but that was about it.

Individual governments have different agendas on their back burners, but a few nations have independently drafted cybercrime laws that conflict with other nation's laws and could inevitably hamper the possible prosecution of criminals committing cybercrimes.

Germany, for example, absolutely prohibits distributing Nazi propaganda, yet here in the United States our free speech laws permit Nazi propaganda to be distributed.

What if Germany issues International warrants to Internet users who accesses web sites that distribute Nazi propaganda? Should your teenager researching World War II be served with an arrest warrant? Should your computer equipment be seized as your teen is handcuffed and escorted out your front door?

What if Saudi Arabia aggressively served international warrants to women who did not cover their faces with veils?

The point that I am trying to make is that without an International Treaty, one that is duly hammered out to define what can or cannot be deemed criminal, the ramifications of foreign countries issuing International warrants to be served on Internet users can be frightening.

The problem, as I see it, is that there are too many nations who have formed too many groups. Each of them is claiming the power to regulate this or that, yet all of them are impotent to enact any meaningful legislation of global significance. Independent aggressive policing of the Internet by selected countries is just as frightening, if not more so, than no regulation at all.

For becoming an IP technology specialist, you have to pass 3M0-700 certification. On the other hand, for becoming a network associate, you need to be a CCNA certified person. As compared to it Microsoft offers MCSA certification for becoming a system administrator. 70-281 is also a Microsoft certification for planning and managing an enterprise project. Many online guides are also available for the preparation of 70-553.
