ABSTRACT

Cyber-Security Enhancement and Consumer Data Protection Act of 2006: Hearing Before the Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism, and Homeland Security of the Committee on the Judiciary, House of Representatives, One Hundred Ninth Congress, Second Session on H.R. 5318, May 11, 2006   [open pdf - 1MB]

From the opening statement of Howard Coble: "Any legislation to enhance cyber-security should begin, it appears to me, with three core principles. First, it should create a strong deterrent to prevent past crimes from being repeated and prevent future attempts to develop new criminal techniques that could be used to exploit the Internet and its users. The one thing we know about Internet fraudsters is that they are a sophisticated and intelligent group of criminals. Secondly, it must protect consumers' personally identifiable data, which, in one way or another, is the ultimate target of all cyber criminals. Finally, we must provide the Department of Justice and private sector with the necessary resources to investigate and prosecute cyber-criminals." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Howard Coble, Robert C. Scott, Lara H. Parsky, Joseph LaRocca, Anne Wallace, and Susanna Montezemolo.
