Visit the National Conference of State Legislatures’ Computer Crimes Statutes page and take a look at the laws for your state related to computer crime. Select one of these laws or a federal law to evaluate. Why does a penetration tester need to be aware of this law? Do you feel this law is sufficient? If so, explain why. If not, what would you change?
Note: If your state has insufficient information or no information, or you get an error message, you can also choose a neighboring state and base your answer on that state’s information.
Consider existing cybersecurity legislation and what might still be missing. If you could create one piece of legislation to help cybersecurity, what would it be? Why is this legislation something needed?
