What to Do About Internet Criminals?

How can Internet criminals be punished? One difficulty is that these crimes are often committed by individuals who are minors, or prosecuted as misdemeanors, not assessing the monetary damage incurred. And the more difficult issue is that heretofore these crimes have been conducted by individuals, rather than organized groups such as terrorist organizations, or even rogue elements of terrorist states. Security issues on the Internet, both to individuals and corporations, will take time to resolve in legislation that lags behind the rapid pace of technology. In the meantime, participation in organizations such as the Electronic Frontier Foundation, TRUSTe, and the Better Business Bureau Online are the best means for Netizens to engage and expedite the privacy issues on the Internet.
