I am an Information Security Professional with over 13 years experience working in the Government and Private sectors.
Comprehensive site, some great links to things I never even knew about! Ethical Hacking legislation…is it still in the dark ages globally as it was in the days of Kevin Mitnick being locked away without charge?
The threat landscape has changed since those days and US legislation has become tougher. It is estimated that approximately 10 Billion US dollars are lost every year in the US due to cyber crime, so you can see that the Malicious hackers are beating the security measure that are in place for most organizations. This is a huge figure that no one can ignore so you can understand that the legislation has become more severe. In the days of Kevin Mitnick the legislation and processes to prosecute hackers was immature in comparison to 2011.
