Don’t commit cyber crime.
We live in a world where corporations have set up their own private spying operations, and the police regard spying as a second career. We live in a world where nations protest America’s surveillance operation, even as they run their own. We live in a world where Bloomberg feels free to run an intelligence operation on Goldman Sachs. We live in a world where News Corps feels free to run saboteur operations against it competitors.
In a world where everyone with a billion dollars acts as if the laws do not apply to them, there is very little possibility of cyber security. The best you can do is secure your own operation and encourage your business partners and customers to do likewise. But it is naive to suppose that stricter laws will have any effect in a world where everyone with a billion dollars disregards the law.
