Abstract

In their first piece, Virtual Crimes, Real Damages: A Primer on Cybercrime In the United States and Efforts to Combat Cybercriminals, Pinguelo and Muller offered a straight-forward discussion of the major forms of cybercrimes affecting the government and business community today, along with a review of federal efforts to combat cybercrime and a compilation of federal and state cyber-related statutes and pending legislation. In this follow-up piece, the authors are joined by a distinguished cybersecurity specialist, Wayne Lee, who provides a discussion of measures that businesses can implement immediately to secure their data and improve defenses against a data breach. Pinguelo and Muller also analyze the various public-private partnerships on cyber-defense currently at work in the United States, and explain how those partnerships are helping create a safer cyber-future.

Keywords: Cybercrime, Combat, Cybercriminals, government, business, federal and state, data breach, privacy, public-private partnerships, cyber, hacking, hactivism
