Can Regulation Offer Protection From Cyber Crime?

There’s a lot of talk about net neutrality these days. Some are saying there is already too much regulation, while others think that regulation, in part, by internet service providers Nashville is the only way to stop cyber crime in its tracks. But the question of regulation carries with it a number of pros and cons.

A core truth of regulation is that it can help to stop crimes like identity theft and malware from affecting us. But on the other hand, that very regulation requires us to give up some of our security in the form of personal information.

Despite the millions of dollars lost every year as a result of cyber crime, there remains little in the way of executable ways to address the issue. So should the public simply wait until government devises ways to meet the problem head on? Most say no, that educating oneself is the only reliable way to stop cyber crime. What’s your opinion?
