After the Gold Rush: Developing Cyber Security Frameworks and Cyber Crime Legislation to Safeguard Privacy and Security
Both “cyber security” and “cyber crime” are terms widely used but often poorly understood. This briefing provides an overview of terminology, concepts and trends in addressing cyber security and cyber crime. It describes the differences between them and associated challenges for the protection of peoples’ security and their human rights. It also highlights key elements and examples from cyber security frameworks and cyber crime legislation globally. The aim is to provide a basis for government and civil society to have an informed, evidence-based and constructive discussion of the effect of different approaches to cyber security and cyber crime, to arrive at frameworks and laws that protect both security and human rights.
